– Shifting Perspectives on Dance Knowledge and Artistic Practices

Symposium within the frame of tanzpol Berlin.

Dec. 19th 2021
11 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Uferstudios Berlin, Studio 1.

With this symposium tanzpol invites at the end of the week to a multi-perspective sharing of experiences and research about the non-western dancing body on the European stage. Voices from Iranian and Non-Iranian artists, theorists and researchers will be heard. The symposium wants to open up a critical discussion around the concept of tanzpol itself and about ways of sharing, curating and representing dance knowledge and various artistic practices. 

tanzpol Symposium is a public event and invites external guests, who are interested in the program. Panels and lectures will be in English.

As places are limited please register before hand via the registration form below.

Parents with children are welcome! We provide an extra studio with babysitter for the full day in studio 2, just a few steps away from studio 14.
