Wiesen 55 e.V., which runs the Tanzhalle Wiesenburg, is a group of artists working in the fields of choreography, dance, lighting design, sculpture, architecture and multimedia art.
Tanzhalle Wiesenburg is a place for artistic research, creation and interdisciplinary collaboration with a focus on stage productions. Alternative to institutional structures, this special cultural place is based on a diversity of competences, common sense and self-organisation within the team, working closely with the hosted artists. We aim for enabling continuous and fluid work processes, and supporting practical and theoretical exchange. The artistic and social aspects of these exchanges expand into interactions with the public. Tanzhalle Wiesenburg (opened 2012) is an important actor within Die Wiesenburg, a historically significant former homeless shelter now dedicated to culture and craft.
Our main focuses / priorities are:
– Research and working processes in the field of performing arts supporting the local art scene and international artists
– Artistic residencies
– Co-operations, workshops, open educational, mediation and training formats
– Presentation formats and Showings
– Special formats developed for and within Tanzhalle Wiesenburg: Gangplank (Bruno Pocheron) and Open Practice Sessions (Isabelle Schad)
Our Sommerfest.ival has been taking place annually since 2021 in co-operation with the Werkhalle Wiesenburg
