Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

In our magazine, we’re focusing on dance in the next issue. That’s why I emailed the embassy because I had talked to the head of the division for cultural affairs when I last was in Berlin, I wanted to touch base about what’s going on dance-wise. And guess what – apparently I live in the German dance hot spot!

Düsseldorf is home to the most important dance fair in Germany, the Internationale Tanzmesse NRW, and it is full of Swedes. We were thus invited to attend the Nordic Mingle in the Swedish Booth on Thursday which was quite a privilege because this fair is for industry experts and not for ordinary mortals. “If ayone asks”, we were instructed, “you are the press from Sweden”. Not entirely wrong, actually, since we were researching the dance article.

We talked to lots of people within one hour, I learned the difference between Konstnärsnämden and Kulturrådet,  and now I know that Cullberg Ballett is the thing from Sweden. I should probably go see some dance, dance, dance.
