The brochure tanz nrw aktuell 07 reflects the current dance landscape in North Rhine-Westphalia both culturally and politically and provides information pertaining to its dancemakers.
The contributions reflect the eclectic and controversial issues which currently characterize the dance landscape. The authors use various formats to shed light on dance in North Rhine-Westphalia. In her essay, Nicole Strecker envisions a future for dance that takes a bold stance alongside North Rhine-Westphalia's strong dance tradition. In his summarizing observation, Thomas Thorausch depicts the situation facing municipal dance ensembles. In a discussion with cultural politics representatives, Bettina Trouwborst poses questions pertaining to dance funding and its implementation. With a bit more distance from the outside, Arnd Wesemann and Katja Schneider make pointed commentaries on the current atmosphere surrounding North Rhine-Westphalia's dance scene. In her artist portraits, Melanie Suchy presents the choreographers and companies, who work in North Rhine-Westphalia and who characterize this federal state's dance landscape with their specific dance pieces. The selection has been made jointly by the NRW Dance Producers Conference / Tanzproduzenten-Konferenz-NRW (TpK) and serves as an example of North Rhine-Westphalia's dance spectrum with its various artistic personalities. An extensive information and address section completes the publication.
