Open Call: Internationale Tanzmesse Festival (Düsseldorf, Germany)


Application deadline: 20 September 2015


The internationale tanzmesse nrw hosts the largest professional gathering dedicated exclusively to contemporary dance. The internationale tanzmesse nrw takes place every two years, generally at the end of August, in Düsseldorf, Germany.

At the Tanzmesse, artists from more than 50 countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia find an equal opportunity to present their work to a professional audience. The Tanzmesse is an event dedicated to contemporary dance without any specific geographical focus.


Submit a proposal

Whether you are an individual dancer, choreographer, a company, or an agency, you are entitled to apply for yourself or an artistic group that you represent to perform on the artistic programme of the Tanzmesse.

You can choose one of two types of submissions: as a Performance or an Open Studio.

You should submit a Performance if the work you want to present is a professional, ready-to-tour production: production must be ready when the application has been submitted (not a work-in-progress).

The Open Studio option is for productions that will still be a work-in-progress at the time of the Tanzmesse 2016.
