Diversity is the subject of the opening performance of the 2011 Tanztage, the fascinating Babel (words) by star-choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui; co-operation is the keyword for the shared RepNet platform to which Tanzcompagnie Oldenburg has invited its outstanding partner companies from Iceland, Scotland, Sweden and Norway; the public’s accessibility to dance is the primary focus for the Tanz ganz nah program, with three remarkable projects directed by various choreographers from France; and last but not least, the issue of identity links the presentation of performances from India, South Korea and Cuba - these rarely seen guest performances exemplify the thrilling cohesion of traditional and contemporary dance forms.
