DANCE: The festival program

Over twenty productions – including five world premieres – from countries from Canada to Taiwan will be performed from May 11 to 21 on the big stages and at different venues in Munich, and in addition there will also be performances and happenings in public spaces, exhibitions, films, and discussion events.

DANCE will open on May 11 with the world premiere at Muffathalle of "Rabbit Hole" by the Munich choreographer Moritz Ostruschnjak, as well as with the production "The Pretty Things" by the Montreal choreographer Catherine Gaudet at Fat Cat/Carl-Orff-Saal. Marie Chouinard, also from Montreal and a guest of the festival, will present the European premiere of her new production «M» at Münchner Kammerspiele.

Another large dance production is "Records," a work by the French choreographer Mathilde Monnier, which uses the lockdown as a source of inspiration and will be performed at Muffathalle.
On the second DANCE weekend the Raimund Hoghe Company will perform "An Evening with Raimund" at Muffathalle, featuring their internationally prominent soloists and choreographers, which is a homage to the grand choreographer who passed away two years ago during the DANCE festival. Richard Siegal and the Ballet of Difference will present at Prinzregententheater their two acclaimed ballets "Triple" and "Xerrox Vol. 2" as part of the DANCE festival.

DANCE is placing an emphasis on specific countries, namely Eastern Europe, Taiwan, and Montreal and also focusses on dance and digitality, on prominent artists and on dance history.
