Tanz im August opens this week for its 30th year, with a lineup including famous contemporary dance choreographers from Berlin and across the world.
We spoke to Virve Sutinen, Artistic Director of the festival, about the themes of the program, the exploration of politics, identity and community, and the accessibility of contemporary dance. “We really designed…this year’s program to accommodate very different audiences,” says Sutinen.
