The Forum Tanzvermittlung offers artists involved in the activities of the Tanzplattform Rhein-Main, as well as other actors in the region, the opportunity to exchange views on questions in the field of "mediation and participation" and thus to gain a reflective distance from their own work.
As an open offer, the Forum Tanzvermittlung enables an intensive exchange on mediation issues, concepts and ideas and thus complements the project-related activities of the Tanzplatform Rhein-Main in this area. The format is aimed at teachers, educators, artists, teachers, mediators and other interested parties. In dialogue with various regional or international artists, questions about education and cultural education are discussed and tested. The events are led by KitaTanz artists, teachers and students of the MA Contemporary Dance Education, team members of the Tanzplattform Rhein-Main or invited experts from the fields of dance art, education and upbringing.

local dancing
Using queer lore and specially invented instant tradition, we imagine popular group dances that may have traveled through time and now appear non-binary and unpaired. Without national ties, the dances pretend to be local wherever they are. They give us reason to come together and be held in the repetition and routine of a circular choreography.

Concept: Clara Reiner
Choreography and practice: Clara Reiner (she/her), René Alejandro Huari Mateus (she*/her*), Jacob Bussmann ( he/him), and Frédéric De Carlo (dey/them).
Music: Jacob Bussmann



Jacob Bussmann
lives in Frankfurt/M and works as a musician and performer. He studied piano at the Musikhochschule Frankfurt/M and the Sibelius Academy Helsinki as well as applied theater studies in Gießen. In production structures of the independent scene in Frankfurt/M he collaborates on theatrical, performative and musical projects. He has composed stage music for municipal theaters and is active as a musical director.

Frédéric de Carlo
was born in Paris and lives in Frankfurt. He studied contemporary dance at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris. He is a freelance dance and performance maker and has been working with local artists since 2017. His projects deal with gender issues, representation and body practices. He is also a movement educator and teaches initiation into somatic practices.

René Alejandro Huari Mateus
The institutional intersections of the forms of discrimination in which choreography, dance, and performance are developed and shown in Germany, and which are hidden behind pretty inclusion programs without changing anything substantial, have shaped René's identity and approach to artistic creation. She pursues and appreciates strategies that aim NOT to reproduce violent structures, not even to denounce violence.

Clara Reiner
Clara Reiner performs, choreographs, builds objects for the stage and lives in Offenbach. She studied choreography and performance at the Institute for Applied Theater Studies in Giessen, Germany, and sculpture at the Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten (KASK) in Ghent, Belgium.
