Two evening performances at the Cologne Opera will feature 110 dancers and 14 choreographers who convey the impressive range and talent of recent graduates. The performances are meant to put dance front and centre in society and foster general discussions about dance education.
For young dancers, public performances are important opportunities: they help them develop as professionals and put them in contact with people who can be important for their careers. The Biennale provides these artists an excellent public venue to present their work. What is more, it gives them the chance to broaden their networks and meet people and institutions from the dance world – dance companies, theatres, event organizers, AK|T speakers, other performers, and art historians.
