About the Conference
The conference aims to stimulate debate and broaden perception on contemporary dance and disability in Germany and beyond. It is one of the events which take place in the context of the EU project Moving Beyond Inclusion. The Berlin based initiative tanzfähig is the German partner of the EU project whose lead partner is the internationally renowned compagny Candoco from London.
With presentations from the Moving Beyond Inclusion partners on their own work and with further contributions from other external professionals, the programme will reflect on the artistic possibilities that dance with diverse physicalities offers. It includes lectures, workshops, plenary discussions, panels and a forum where participants of the congress are invited to present their own projects in short form.
The conference’s languages are German, English and German sign language (each with simultaneous translation). The venue is accessible for wheelchair users.
