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.

ESTABLISHED AND EXPERIMENTAL
Mousonturm is widely known for presenting avantgarde local and international performing artists, such as Forced Entertainment or Rimini Protokoll. Indeed, the independant artists’ house has stayed the course of being daring for the entire 30 years of its existence. It tackles conventions and keeps on recalibrating our understanding of performing arts ... such with incognito lectures in McDonald’s restaurants or a group of moles riding an escalator! Its repertoire is broad, ranging from concerts, political art events, performances in urban spaces, to dance trainings and workshops. It also likes to promote emerging artists, such as recent grads of Frankfurt’s University for Performing Arts (HfMDK) or Giessen’s Institute for Applied Theatre Studies (ATW), and collaborate with other art centres such as Frankfurt Lab. Hence, what was once the tower (Turm) of a former soap factory is today a well-established art venue that has remained raw and experimental.
