For those interested, here is news from the first (new) Tanzkongress in Berlin 

Dance Congress Germany
20th – 23rd of April 2006 

"Knowledge in Motion" / Wissen in Bewegung

Haus der Kulturen, Berlin -  House of World Cultures

The human body on stage, movements structured by rhythm or its autonomy from 
words and concepts: The elements that make dance so special and fascinating or 
through which it can seduce or irritate give rise to discussion, all the more 
so since contemporary dance, in particular, often disavows practiced forms of 
reception. Following in the footsteps of its historical Dancer's congresses 
predecessors from the 1920’s, the Dance Congress recreates after many decades a 
major national forum where these and other questions concerning the art form 
dance may be asked and debated at length. 

Spanning four days, the Congress in Berlin will bring together more than 100 
international experts from the fields of dance and choreography. Speakers from 
the fields of production, pedagogy, critique, academia and cultural politics 
will be presenting and reflecting on theories which determine present-day 
discourse. In lectures, discussions, work groups and lecture demonstrations, 
both theoretical and practice-relevant subjects will be discussed with the 
assistance of an audience of professionals. 

We wish all those speaking at and attending the Congress an inspiring exchange 
of ideas and opinions and look forward to hearing some exciting discussions.
