Originally conceived in cooperation with Campus/Bavarian State Ballet and from 2018 onwards in partnership with the Schauburg ­– Municipal Theatre for Young Audiences, the biennial festival significantly contributes to bringing wider audiences into contact with the performing arts, with a special emphasis on dance. The festival also seeks to create spaces for international networking opportunities and exchange between dance makers.
