TANZAHOi International Festival is looking for short dance films for our new 2021 Program Take Part of Another World. The digital program, curated by the festival team, will be live-streamed on 3. - 5. September 2021. The dance films will be directly streamed on tanzahoi.org, Facebook, Youtube, and Twitch. If COVID regulations in September allow, the stream will be shown in Metropolis Kino in Hamburg to an in-person audience in addition to the digital on-lookers on the streaming platforms.

TANZAHOi International Dance and Dance Film Festival will bring outstanding international dance productions to Hamburg via livestream for the 2021 digital festival, Take Part in Another World. After a successful live-streamed dance film festival in 2020, we wish to continue cultivating a digital platform for this year’s upcoming festival, streaming live performances from around the world in real time. We are interested in showing existing productions, but also in stimulating new productions conceived especially for TANZAHOi.

The plans for TANZAHOi International Dance & Dance Film Festival 2021 have been set in motion! For our fourth annual festival, we will stream live dance performances and screen dance films on our digital platform, as well as in Metropolis Kino Hamburg, creating a live-in-person substitute for our local audience. The communication between artists and the audience will remain an essential part of the festival.
tanzahoi.org along with Youtube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitch will again be our streaming platforms. The exchange between the audience and artists will take place over Zoom. As an access point and spark of interest for the arts and future possibilities, we will integrate TikTok to reach young audience members with choreography and engagement opportunities.
We are very excited to announce that TANZAHOi International Festival 2021 will be supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste through their #TakePart fund. The foundation makes it possible for our festival to build our brand new digital-arts concept, Take Part in Another World, and realize the program in September 2021 which will include newly-chosen dance films, a selection of live-streamed dance performances, and the five most-voted films of the 2020 Dance Film Festival.
TANZAHOi is happy to announce our new co-operation partner Altonale! We are very excited to collaborate with this wonderful, multi-disciplined-arts festival which is hosted annually in the Altona borough of Hamburg.

Thanks for a great festival!

In September 2020 we hosted our first digital festival and also our very first International Dance Film Festival! With over 20 films from artists across the world, we brought the artists and our audience together via Livestream across three platforms and Zoom over the course of our festival weekend.

Dance Workshops

During the first two years of TANZAHOi (2018 - 2019) in cooperation with Hochschulsport Hamburg, artists from different professional dance groups across several countries offered weekend workshops. The participants of the workshops received three days of intensive training in unique dance styles originating with the companies and/or countries the teachers came from.
A network between the international artists and the dancers in Hamburg began to form, opening the way for further expansion of international dance exchange in the city in 2020 and beyond.

Gaga workshops from Chen-Wei Lee, Gosia Mielech, ballet workshops from Karen Azatyan (Hamburg Ballet), Meng-Ke Wu (NDT), partnering workshops from Marion Sparber & Alan Fuentes Guerra, touching beyond workshops from Ching-Ying Chien (Akram Khan), collision and flow workshops from Damien Fournier, organic acrobatic workshops with Alexandros Anastasiadis (Ultima Vez) with participants from over 4 continents!
