Ponderosa TanzLand

Ponderosa TanzLand  welcomes international guests and artists to their studios located on an old farm outside of Berlin in the Brandenburg region of Germany. A vibrant nonprofit organisation, Ponderosa TanzLand organises a wide range of workshops and happenings in the fields of contemporary dance, improvisation, movement and research. The place is probably best known for its annual summer dance festival with workshops, contact jams and performances. But beyond the festival, there are a great number of other exciting endeavours that shape the unique profile of Ponderosa TanzLand. Among others, these are: the P.O.R.C.H. Summer School – Ponderosa’s professional program, the engagement as partner of the IDOCDE project on the documentation of dance education funded by the EU, the initiation of cultural events in the rural region of Brandenburg, the development of new creative projects in correspondence to the amazing potential of Ponderosa as an open structure, a concept, a life style… (to name only a few!).

Artistic director Stephanie Maher has been looking for a new partner in order to foster and further develop these projects in complementation to the yet established festival. Her word spread and arrived at e&e’s open ears in January 2012. A meeting was arranged. A sparkle set off…here we are!

Below we will try to give you brief updates on current activities and developments. For further details and more ‘poetic’ information, please visit Ponderosa’s website at www.ponderosa-dance.com.
