Tanzbiennale Heidelberg 2023


Dance breaking free

27 January to 5 February 2023

The Theater und Orchester Heidelberg and the UnterwegsTheater founded the TANZallianz in 2012. This lasting cooperation between the municipal theatre and the independent scene is unique in Germany and not least enabled the establishment of a festival that celebrates dance in all its forms.

In addition to the traditional components of the Tanzbiennale such as the Youth Dance Project and the Tanzgala Baden-Württemberg as anchor points in the local scene, the 2023 festival edition offers a series of national and international highlights in the guest performance programme. From icons of contemporary dance to flamenco dance and new actors on the dance scene, the 2023 Tanzbiennale has become even bigger and more diverse.

Finally, experience more than twenty guest performances live and together over ten days on the five stages of the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg and the UnterwegsTheater and look forward to a rich supporting programme with film screenings, workshops, panel discussions and parties.
