Tanztheater International 2019

Contemporary dance in a class of its own: the International Dance Festival celebrates its 34th season from 29 August to 7 September. The programme has been finalised and advance sales have begun.

No summer without dance: in 2019 the Hanover Festival Tanztheater International will once again offer highlights of international dance art. From 29 August to 7 September, the 34th festival round with several productions invites you to the Orangerie Herrenhausen, the Niedersächsisches Staatstheater and the Hochschule für Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover. The festival, which has been in existence since 1985, is one of the best known presentation platforms for contemporary dance in Germany, highlighting trends and tendencies and stimulating discourse.


On the first weekend of the festival there will be a big reunion with the Belgian festival favourites Peeping Tom at the Schauspielhaus: On September 1st they will bring the last part of their surreal family trilogy to Hannover with "Child". On the following day, the festival debut of choreographer Catherine Gaudet will attract a Canadian dance avant-garde to Ballhof Eins. A top-class double feature awaits the audience on September 4: Israeli choreographer Hillel Kogan shows the duet "The Swan and the Pimp" and takes a close look at the balance of power at Ballhof Eins, while on the same evening a ten-minute solo of the new Hanover ballet director Marco Goecke is presented at Ballhof Zwei with "Äffi".
