PARTNERS 2017

tanzfähig BERLIN initiative aims to add the dimension of physical diversity to contemporary dance, and is educationally as well as artistically oriented. The initiative advocates for plurality in dance and resists all uniformity. In dancing together, we support and represent a high level of diversity, while acknowledging that sometimes exclusions cannot be avoided. Developed from a melting pot of ideas in the disciplines of contemporary dance and dance improvisation, tanzfähig strives to provide access to dance for all people, and to support physical diversity among dancers. Bernhard Rizharz and Evelyne Wohlfarter are the main core of  the group.
