Current productions and developments of the North Rhine-Westphalian dance scene will be presented in seven cities on eight days, among them ensembles that have already gained international renown as well as promising new discoveries. Eight members of the Tanzproduzenten-Konferenz NRW (TPK) collectively chose a programme consisting of more than 25 dance productions in 2009, an inspirational programme of experimental conceptualizing and convincing choreographical handwritings.
