The Autostadt's dance festival
The Autostadt presented the first Movimentos Festival in spring 2003. Originally conceived as a contemporary dance festival, the series of performances represents a commitment to a universal art form. Dance is a fundamental expression of human movement. The programme of events gradually evolved. What started out as a series of dance performances evolved to become one of Germany's leading cultural events in 2006. Along with a diversity of dance performances, the festival line-up you can see on stage for about one month, includes some talented young dancers, who create their own choreographies in a Movimentos Academy dancing class.
MOVIMENTOS WILL NOT BE TAKING PLACE IN 2020Due to the health risks posed by the coronavirus, the Movimentos dance festival will not be taking place this year. This decision was inevitable for the management of the Autostadt in view of the continuing restrictions. Cultural events of this size cannot be held in the current situation.
Five appearances by the renowned Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker were planned in June 2020 to mark the 20th anniversary of the Autostadt. The production commissioned specifically for the anniversary, which was due to be presented for the first time as part of a major summer festival, had to be cancelled. The Movimentos Academy Dance Class rehearsals, in which children and adolescents from the region are developing their own choreography, are currently on hold. As soon as the situation permits, a performance date for the Academy will be sought outside of Movimentos.
