Mediation & documentation //


The educational project TOWARDS of the Werkhaus e.V. is a cooperation with the cultural office of the city of Krefeld. Both founded the label ‘Krefeld tanzt zeitgenössisch’ in 2008 in order to give a focus on contemporary dance in Krefeld. In the years 2022 and 2023, the interlinking of educational work and professional dance work will be intensified in this project in collaboration with the Cologne ensemble Emanuele Soavi incompany and the Krefeld artists Andreas Simon and Anna Brass.

TOWARDS focuses on the discussion of communication strategies for contemporary dance. It looks at mediation from the perspectives of the two institutions, develops and tests new formats between stage and world, semi-public and public, theoretically and practically.

TOWARDS is funded as a co-operation project between socio-cultural centers and municipal cultural institutions by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia via soziokultur nrw.
