September 6th -11th, 2021
Gallus Theater, Frankfurt am Main
The third edition of ZUKUNFT TANZT - Abend der jungen Choreografie again wants to create space for choreographers of all ages who understand themselves at the beginning of their choreographic career. This year, the act of choreography will actively be in focus. During the six days there is the opportunity to further develop the piece and own way of working in a choreographic laboratory by trying out, exchanging and thinking further through specific program points. What interests choreographers in contemporary dance and its various directions, what moves and influences their own work? Two performance evenings are intended to show the participating works and to bring the process of the piece further.

"Starting out as a freelancer" (Lecture)
06.09. 16:30 - 17:30
I would like to speak about my path as a freelance dancer (/vs. company experience) straight out of studies, where it brought me, and how multi-disciplinary, collaborative and site-specific work inspire me.
Maria Kobzeva is a Russian-Canadian dancer, performer, choreographer. She started with rhythmic gymnastics in Canada and then studied at the Vaganova Ballet Academy. After graduation, she joined SPBT Theater and toured with a wide classical repertoire. To expand her knowledge, she studied contemporary dance in Frankfurt. Here she worked with various choreographers (Paula Rosolen, Dieter Heitkamp, Stephanie Thiersch, among others) and participated in many interdisciplinary projects. She won the Alix-Steilberger scholarship and the audience award for two shorter choreographies at festivals. Her recent productions include performance "Patterns of perception" and dance-film "CTRL_R". Curious about the film world, she has collaborated on three dance films in 2019/21. She is currently a freelance artist, creating, collaborating and living in Frankfurt.
"A look into the field" (Lecture)
What is important to know when you are starting an artistic activity in the independent scene? How can you realize your own projects, what is necessary for this and which networks and ins * tu * ons are there on site? As an example of a structure and contact point in Frankfurt, we will take a look at ID_Frankfurt - Independent Dance and Performance e.V. and its projects. What does the association stand for? And which projects is he currently implementing?
Mareike Uhl, dramaturge, and Amelia Uzategui Bonilla, choreographer and performer, are both active on the board of ID_Frankfurt e.V. and are currently implementing the ID_Tanzhaus Frankfurt Rhein-Main project as the co-artistic management team.
