"Dancing About" presented 10 premieres by artists and choreographers from Dresden, Görlitz and Leipzig, which had been created within the framework of TANZPAKT Dresden (2019-2021). The starting point for the productions were research residencies in different areas and institutions of social life. These were the starting points for the conceptions and artistic projects that could be experienced as part of the festival "Dancing About" at HELLERAU - European Center for the Arts and at Villa Wigman. In addition, there were Open Studios with further artists, an EDN Atelier, discussions, parties and workshops.
