international tanzmesse nrw takes place every two years at the end of August, in Düsseldorf, Germany. Organised by nrw landesbureo tanz, it’s a forum for exchange and networking and an important meeting place for the international dance community.

It’s the largest professional gathering for contemporary dance where up to 2,000 international exhibitors and visitors come together to present a broad spectrum of aesthetic expression and artistic practices. The next Tanzmesse takes place Wednesday 28 to Saturday 31 August 2024.

We’ll be supporting artists alongside TWR and NDCW to submit proposals through each of our exhibition areas at the 2024 event.

Tanzmesse seek full-length performances that take place either on stage, in public spaces and/or digitally that can be presented to international visitors and a public audience. This includes works aimed at intergenerational or young audiences.

They also welcome proposals for “Open Studios”, where artists present their artistic productions through a short physical presentation and a Q&A. In addition to “Insights”, where professionals give a media-based presentation to share production methods, project ideas, networks, collaborations, and other endeavours in the field of dance.
