The Über / Haltung / Unter [German pun containing terms such as about/attitude/under] dialogue format unites dance professionals and experts from other areas such as neuroscience, architecture, philosophy and other fields of art. Together with the public, they talk about topics relating to dance but with cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary relevance. In particular, the TanzDIALOGE events, which are also accompanied by workshops, make it possible for a public, which has so far had few experiences in the field of dance, to gain an insight into the creative processes and working methods of dancers and choreographers. In order to break down fear of contact and extend access to the art form, TanzDIALOGE will specifically be taken to places where there have so far been no encounters with dance.
The feedback and the knowledge from the interactive encounter will also help dance professionals to broaden their perspective and integrate new impulses and ideas into their work. The new meeting platform can therefore show that dance is more than just aesthetic movement and that dance professionals do not only occupy themselves with the body and its forms of expression. Dance should consequently become more visible as a component of art and culture in the minds of people in Leipzig, and a general understanding of contemporary, experimental dance and associated dance processes should be established.
