WAS IST WAS (WHAT IS WHAT): A Journey Through the Genres

The range of performance forms within the performing arts is diverse. The festival’s schedule of programming presents work that ranges from spoken word theater to site-specific work.  But what exactly is hidden behind these terms? 

A trip with TANZSCOUT (DANCE SCOUT) provides insight into the individual genres: music theater, performance, dance, spoken word theater and contemporary circus are on the itinerary and we will visit typical productions for each one. On five evenings, your tour guide will provide basic information about each of these genres before and after the performance and provide information about the selected production. Basic knowledge will be provided about performance forms, formats and discussions about their changes. And, as often occurs with TANZSCOUT, you will be on the move and encounter other interested people over the course of shared exchanges.

It is possible to book only one event – or to go on the entire journey. If you do, you will benefit from a volume discount on the ticket price (if you book 3 performances or more). More about TICKETS & SERVICE
