PACT Zollverein is the host of the German Dance Platform 2018

Every two years the German Dance Platform provides a testing ground for artistic tendencies and developments of international note in the field of dance and performance in Germany. Executed in collaboration with the Platform’s organisers' association and co-organisers, the International Theatre Institute (ITI) and the Goethe-Institut, the occasion brings together dance professionals, artists and enthusiasts from the local region, Germany and abroad for a lively and informed exchange on the current state of contemporary dance.
Alongside PACT, the performance venues for the 14th edition of the biennial festival include numerous other locations at the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site Zollverein, the Aalto Theater in Essen, and the Musiktheater im Revier in Gelsenkirchen. The jury’s official programme selection for the German Dance Platform 2018 will be announced at the end of 2017.
