Good news: The new Nooijs will open the café on Sat 22.07.

... at tanzhaus nrw you’ll get something to eat and to drink again. We managed to find a temporary solution – yes, temporary, we promise, til the Nooijs will open the new hot space in tanzhaus nrw: On Mondays + Fridays from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. you can buy what your body needs in the foyer: cold or hot, salty or sweet. On events in the evening in the foyer the minibar is open. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the closure of Deans Bistro and ask for your understanding.

tanzhaus nrw receives Theaterpreis des Bundes 2017

Overwhelmed by joy, speechless and proud! tanzhaus nrw – among seven other theatres – received the Theaterpreis des Bundes 2017. We take a deep breath, see what we find in our fridge and simply keep on going. “After decades of continuity tanzhaus nrw dared a new start with Bettina Masuch as artistic director in 2014”, the jury explains. “Since then local contacts have been strengthened and youth work continued by Junges Tanzhaus. Furthermore, with the factory artists the institution gained international importance. With thematic emphases like Real Bodies and Zusammen the house has devoted itself to social topics, which find expression in artistic aesthetics. Between community space and a place of education and training, with conferences like Inventur 2 tanzhaus nrw builds a bridge across international discourses of our time. tanzhaus nrw succeeds in connecting artistic avant-garde, topics of the present day and the society of the city, which is in terms of dancing – very practically – at home there. The house uses the focus on dance for building a community in motion.
