FRM | Platform, Festival, Venues

A Region dances to the Fore


FrankfurtRheinMain is increasingly making a name for itself in the German dance scene. The region’s two top players, Frankfurt’s Mousonturm and the Hessian State Ballet in Wiesbaden/Darmstadt, cooperated in launching a dance platform – Tanzplattform Rhein-Main – with lots of activities and a festival for outstanding local and international productions. There’s also the Frankfurt Lab, inviting Mousonturm and university ensembles such as ATW (Giessen) and HfMDK to explore new forms of dance and performance. The city of Mainz with its creative tanzmainz ensemble and festival, is yet another hub of this vibrant scene. Tanzplattform Rhein-Main is also breaking new ground with a day of dance and its Ensemble Mobil, which seeks a more immediate interface with the public. Finally, a lively independent and alternative scene from Implantieren Festival to Antagon action theatre contribute to the region’s dynamic dance and performance landscape.

DA WI | Hessian State Ballet

Compagnie Pas de Deux


The region is increasingly acclaimed for being a great place for ballet. Frankfurt was the birthplace of the world-famous Forsythe Company and today hosts the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company under Jacopo Godani, its successor. In no way less ambitious is the Hessian State Ballet, which rose more recently from a merger of the dance sections of the state theatres in Wiesbaden and Darmstadt. Drawing from the strength of its two parent companies, and led by the distinguished choreographers Tim Plegge and Bruno Heynderickx, the ensemble has conceived a much acclaimed modern Nutcracker right beside political pieces such as #Mensch (human). The residency programme and the involvement of the independent scene are also very remarkable.
