Choreographers are invited to produce mobile dance productions with professional dancers in the Rhine-Main region, which leave conventional theatre spaces behind and which can be presented in unusual performance venues, such as e.g. class rooms, community centres, tennis clubs, buses or out in the open countryside. After completion, the mobile piece will ideally tour throughout the region.

The Ensemble Mobil invites dance makers to access new performance spaces and local audiences as artistic working environments beyond the big cities. At the same time, we seek to bring audiences with little or no access to dance in contact with contemporary dance makers – if possible, as early as in the rehearsal and production phase of the mobile production.


Ensemble Mobil II

The Choreographer Canan Erek is looking for female and male dancers for her new production, which she will realize in the context of the Ensemble Mobil of Tanzplattform Rhein-Main.

The production focusses on the relationship between urban citizens and the designed nature within urban space. Yet, Canan Erek has developed divers projects in public spaces and now aims to intervene in the everyday life of urban parks. In this context the project will not only focus on the interaction between the „nature-space-landscape“ but as well on an active process with the spectators.

- Education in contemporary dance technique
- A minimum of 3 years professional experience in stage-performance
- Experience in partnering and improvisation
- Joy in experimentation

Students and artists from the /Rhine-Main region are preferred.

Lina Lindheimer: As we are waiting
The waiting room at the job centre is a space in-between – between unemployment and finding a new job, between idleness and movement. Choreographers believe that there is no such thing as true idleness. So Berlin choreographer Lina Lindheimer asked people waiting at Job centers in Frankfurt, Hofheim and Wiesbaden: “What are we really doing, when we do nothing?”.

Concept: Lina Lindheimer
Realization: Katja Dreyer, Mart Kangro, René Liebert, Lina Lindheimer, Lito Walkey
Sound: Nils Weishaupt
Set Design: Anne Kuhn, René Liebert
Performed by Mart Kangro, Lito Walkey, Katja Dreyer
Supported by Jobcenter Frankfurt am Main, Kommunales Jobcenter Wiesbaden and Kreisausschuss des Main-Taunus-Kreises.

Lina Lindheimer is a choreographer based in Berlin. Her work includes performance, choreography and film, frequently linking video to performative elements. Productions often entail an outside perspective on dance. She creates her own and collaborative projects as well as commissioned works and has been active as a mentor and lecturer. Lina Lindheimer studied choreography and performance in Gießen and contemporary dance in Arnhem.
