As the initiator and artistic director of PURPLE, I want to create access to contemporary dance – not only – for a young audience. Since 2017, I have been organising this international dance festival together with my colleague Inge Zysk in Berlin. Our goal is to get children and young people excited about dance and curious about contemporary performances.
We not only want to sharpen the viewing habits of children and young people, but also to encourage them to participate, empathise and think further. That’s why, in addition to a professional stage programme, we also offer a supporting programme for each piece and a dance workshop for young people at the weekend. We also give teachers and educators the chance to develop a basic understanding of contemporary dance. We offer free workshops for them and their school classes.
