TanzScout Mission Statement

Initiated by Berlin-based dramaturge and researcher Maren Witte, TanzScout is an independent service that provides Berliners as well as Berlin visitors a way to navigate the city’s alternative dance and performance art scene, a scene that is often not easy to find if you don’t know where to look. To this end, TanzScout offers workshops, lectures and guided tours to contemporary dance performances and rehearsals, in order to provide orientation, context information and even the chance to explore physically how a dance or performance piece is made.  The vision of TanzScout is to further expose Berlin’s international and vital dance scene, representing all cooperating theaters and organizations in Berlin which showcase and produce dance and performance art.
