The Potsdamer Tanztage have established themselves since 1991 as an outstanding international artistic highlight in Potsdam and remain unique in the state of Brandenburg. In the meantime, the festival has become the largest performing arts festival in Brandenburg. Every year the programme invites dance companies from all over the world to Potsdam and thus offers an internationally top-class spectrum of different dance theatre forms. For twelve days, the state capital of Brandenburg becomes the stage for the international dance scene.
The performances form the core of the festival: solo works and large ensembles, narrative dance theatre and pure movement, plays for children and unusual performances alternate in a rich programme. The aim is to present the diversity of the current international dance scene, which is characterised by its high level of creativity. A special focus of the festival is the closeness between audience and artists. The festival therefore includes workshops for interested laymen and professional dancers, as well as discussions with artists, which after the performances encourage exchange with dancers, choreographers and the audience. Concerts, dance films, installations, DJs complete the programme and invite you to linger in the Schiffbauergasse.
The programme of the workshops will be published online in February 2020. The programme of the performance will be published online in March 2020.
