The DTH dances at the Völkerkundemuseum


In the »Freiraum« project, the dancers of Dance Theatre Heidelberg can explore their choreographic talent and create movement material together with or for their colleagues. In summer 2024, this »Freiraum« will take place at a very special location: the Völkerkundemuseum, the Heidelberg Ethnological Museum. On two evenings, you can experience the DTH's very own handwriting and creative ideas in and around the museum. The dancers draw inspiration from the works of art on display, the history of the museum and the city as well as their own lives.
