A big hello to you all

We’re back! The advance ticket sale will be there for you Thursdays and Fridays from 5 p.m. til 7 p.m. as well as one hour before the beginning of a performance. In addition to this you can reach us via info@tanzhaus-nrw.de


Our new programme series CEREMONY NOW! successfully started with the season opening and our new course semester has already begun as well. You find all the new COURSES, WORKSHOPS and the ARTISTIC PROGRAMME til October 2017 at www.tanzhaus-nrw.de. If you wish, we’re glad to sent you the brochures by post as well.


May we introduce to you: As of now, the NOOIJ DUTCH DELI will open for you from Monday til Sunday! We are very much looking forward to our collaboration with Johannes and Nene Nooij, who, following an intense phase of reconstruction, opened the new NOOIJ at tanzhaus nrw on July 22, 2017. Here, a diversified deli-like kitchen meets stylish interior design. Simon Oliver, the new Viennese chef, will prepare local, down-to-earth meals in a new and creative manner, similar to  the Comfort Kitchen in New York’s Dutch quarter. The menu features the possibly tastiest chicken in the world, homemade cake, bread and toast in all variations, breakfast options to die for as well as a number of dishes for lunch and dinner. We say: Eet smakelijk!

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.
