The outreach residencies offered by Tanzplattform Rhein-Main are unique in Europe. Funding is give to the creation and further development of dance outreach projects that involve the audience in various ways. Both practical as well as theoretical participation and inclusive concepts are thereby possible – presented as selective events before performances, as long-term workshops or as cooperative projects. As part of an outreach residency, Frankfurt dancer and choreographer Jason Jacobs worked from February until June 2017 on his project “Moving the Space Between”, in which he made contact with the audience directly after select performances of the Hessische Staatsballet and various guest performances – in a very special kind of exchange. The discussions were not merely verbal, but also physical. In Frankfurt, Wicki Bernhardt and Janna Pinsker developed a lecture performance, conceived for young audiences aged 14 and up, which will premiere in fall 2017.
