Dance Company of the Gerhart Hauptmann-Theatre Görlitz-Zittau

dance which speaks for itself; contemporary but coherent, original, meaningful, communicative, gripping.

"Defying all labels and packaging, the wee dance company are out to confound and intrigue …" (The List, 23.08.2001 / Ruth Hedges) – Since its inception in 1999, the award-winning wee dance company has been invited to perform in Cyprus, The Netherlands, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Russia, Scotland, Croatia, the USA, Poland and Zimbabwe, as well as to most dance venues in Berlin and over 20 venues elsewhere in Germany, with a repertoire of 6 one-hour-long dance pieces, over 10 short pieces and a 90-minute-long coproduction with the Israeli Tel Aviv Dance Company (formerly DEdE Dance Company), and was thereby described, among other things, as "one of the most substantial, most versatile, internationally most active Berliner ensembles in contemporary dance" (dance for you magazine, Januar - Februar 2008 / Volkmar Draeger).

"At a distance from the fashionable, the wee dance company has for years been developing its discrete and independent aesthetics..." (Die Deutsche Bühne, Jan. 2007 / Frank Wiegand) – cleaving its own path out of line with the "Mainstream" of Berlin's off-scene, "Neues Deutschland" described it as "elegant, meticulous and richly inventive, wonderfully distancing itself from [...what] currently dominates Berlin's dance scene" but also as "satisfying a longing one didn't even know still existed." (Neues Deutschland, 30.08.2005 / Tom Mustroph.)

The wee dance company has been supported by the Goethe Institute and the Berlin Senate's department for science, research and culture, has been commissioned by the Literature Workshop Berlin, is supported by the Balance 1 Dance Academy, and is sponsored by NOXXS Logistic GmbH.
