DANCE again - first program points of the 18th edition

From May 11 – 21, 2023, DANCE, will present in Munich with its 18th edition highlights of international contemporary dance. After the last edition of this biennale, which had to take place in 2021 in a purely digital form due to the pandemic, DANCE is promising this year to again be a large dance festival with extraordinary live experiences.

This much can be revealed already: DANCE will open with a premiere by the Munich choreographer Moritz Ostruschnjak at Muffathalle. Marie Chouinard's »M« will be shown as a European premiere at the Münchner Kammerspiele. The French choreographer Mathilde Monnier deals with the feeling of confinement, and not only during the lockdown, in her production of "Records." Richard Siegal and his Ballet of Difference at Schauspiel Köln will present two celebrated, successful ballets, "Triple" and "Xerrox Vol. 2" at Prinzregententheater, organized by Muffatwerk Munich in cooperation with DANCE.

The program will feature works that were already planned for the 2021 edition but due to Corona unfortunately had to be cancelled; this includes the two site specific performances “Walking to Present” and “Life Traveler” by the New York choreographer Jody Oberfelder and the dance installation “Trans Corporal Formations” by Tobias Staab.

The comprehensive festival program will be announced at a press conference on March 21.
