Culture Ireland led a delegation to the international Tanzmesse dance showcase in Dusseldorf, Germany which took place between Wednesday 31 August to Saturday 3 September 2016. A biennial dance fair, Tanzmesse is the largest professional gathering worldwide dedicated exclusively to contemporary dance.
This year, Culture Ireland supported a selected group of dance companies and delegates to attend Tanzmesse 2016 dance fair. Culture Ireland’s presence enabled these artists to meet producers, programmers, managers and agents and discuss the latest developments in contemporary dance alongside some 170 exhibitors from 50 countries. This participation is designed to build up a network of contacts which will lead to future dance work opportunities for talented Irish artists.
