The Offensive Tanz für junges Publikum develops innovative dance and mediation formats for people between 0 and 18 years. As an association of four experienced partners from the contemporary dance and theatre scene for children and young people (PURPLE - International Dance Festival for Young Audiences, TANZKOMPLIZEN, Theater Strahl and Theater o.N.), we improve the exchange and networking of the actors in this field and establish dance for young audiences in the Berlin public in the long term.

Dance as a universal form of expression stands for openness in thinking and perception. The Offensive Tanz für junges Publikum Berlin enables a joint exchange about what is seen and creates protected spaces for this. As a member of "The Many", we take a clear position against any form of discrimination and support the plurality of society and the freedom of the arts.

Due to the developments in connection with Covid-19 the venues of our partner institutions remain closed. However, rehearsals are already continuing under hygiene conditions and new dates have been announced for the autumn. We also aim to make as much digital material available as possible on the Offensive Tanz blog and social media channels in order to provide insights into our work -- with videos from rehearsals, trailers, accompanying articles and interviews as well as home schooling and Behind The Scenes statements by the people of Offensive Tanz,
