We are very happy to announce our first tanzschreiber writing workshop, starting in August 2021. Inky and Aslan have crafted a series of writing assignments which give you the opportunity to work on your expressive writing skills in writing about the Berlin dance scene.

The course is based around one-to-one feedback and support for each writer. The participants receive four assignments (approx. 500 words each) in which they write about dance. Each assignment has a brief, a word-count, and a deadline. Once an assignment is completed the writers will receive both written and face-to-face feedback and support via Zoom or live, depending on the situation at the time.

The aim of the course is to support people in writing about dance through mentorship and editing, and to think together about new ways of writing in relation to dance.

The six participants of the first tanzschreiber workshop program starting in August 2021 and running until December 2021 are An*dre Neely, Carmen Rodríguez, Cian McConn, Eddy Levin, Liza Weber, and Parvathi Ramanathan.

Read here the Open Call for the first round of TAP TAP TWIST & TURN: A Writing Slowdance with Inky & Aslan (published on 28 June 2021, application deadline: 27 July 2021).

Please note: A separate tanzschreiber workshop program focusing on writing in relation to dance in German language will start later this year.

“Perspektive Tanz“ is a project of Tanzbüro Berlin, supported by Zeitgenössischer Tanz Berlin e.V. The project is funded for the years 2021 to 2023 by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the state of Berlin.
