Editions are put together in the performance spaces at NRW-Forum Düsseldorf. The exhibition booths at Tanzmesse cover the entire product and service spectrum available to dance professionals. On a dancer level, this means dancewear, clothing and shoes, while there’s also quite a lot of equipment for the stage. Tanzmesse gives visitors a taste of the shows being staged around the world thanks to the spectacular work in the Open Studios and Curated Showcases. Rather than having to travel the world, you only have to travel the theatres and venues at the center! It’s not just all live shows. Professionals have a real chance to talk on sensitive topics at the Talks & Panels.
