15. - 23. MAI 2020


The Festival TANZ Bremen cannot take place in 2020 as planned due to the nationwide ban on events caused by the Corona Pandemic and the current orders of the Senate of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. A postponement of the festival to the year 2021 is now being planned and in view of the current situation is expressly welcomed by the Senator for Culture.
With this decision, the festival is following the current measures taken by the Federal Government, the federal states and local authorities to comprehensively protect the health of all citizens and guests from around the world.



Founded in 1988 as a regional festival, TANZ Bremen is now a prominent, international, cultural event of the Hanseatic city and one of the most important contemporary dance festivals in Germany. It features outstanding international guest performances by renowned choreographers, while simultaneously offering a stage for the regional dance scene, for young talents, experiments, and new approaches. The biennial thus grants insights into the current range of possible expressions and themes in dance.
Thanks to the co-operation with various cultural institutions in Bremen, TANZ Bremen is accompanied by an extensive supporting programme including workshops, discussions, films and exhibitions.
