COOPERATION IN THE NETWORK
The network is dedicated to expanding the range of programmes for children and young people by presenting and touring stage productions and, above all, mobile pop-up dance pieces. The Pop-Ups are developed by experienced choreographers and teams and can be performed beyond the theatre stage in schools, museums, cultural centres or public spaces. Children and young people are actively involved in all phases of the artistic working processes.
Festivals with expert meetings bundle the productions and offer space for national and international networking opportunities as well as dialogue on cultural and educational policies.
Explore dance - Dance for Young Audiences Network was awarded the 2019 Perspective Prize of the Deutsche Bühnenverein’s German Theatre Award FAUST.
