We want you

Be part of it

You will find calls for proposals, both for professional dance creatives as well as for amateurs with and without prior dance experience, when choreographers look for people to realise their special projects. 

You use TikTok and have the feeling that Theater could still learn a lot from TikTok and you? Then you are exactly the person we are looking for!

As part of TIKTOK – VIRALES THEATER, FFT Düsseldorf and tanzhaus nrw will be spending a weekend on and with the social media platform from 25. to 27. October. We want to find out whether TikTok is a stage and what theater makers and dance professionals can learn from the short videos. As a TikTok expert, you can't miss out!

What we are looking for:

We are searching for coproduction projects by professional artists aimed at a young audience, to be performed at tanzhaus nrw during the 2025 calendar year.

What we offer:

  • Workshops: Find out how artists have used TikTok in the context of theater and dance so far.
  • Exciting discussions: Come together with other young people, give insights into your bubbles and talk intergenerationally with theater makers and other visitors about whether and how stage and TikTok fit together.
  • Community vibes: Find out how you can empower yourself and others.
  • Performances: Experience how TikTok trends are implemented live on stage and how TikTok becomes a stage. MYKE from onlinetheaer.live and a dance routine by senzenberger|rieck will be performing at the event.

For a first exchange format, we are looking for young people who will talk to other people about the platform at various stations. You can talk about your favorite trends or red flags, clarify your PoV or think together about which formats should be brought to the stage. You will receive an expense allowance for the preparation and implementation of the format and can take part in the entire event program free of charge.
