Let’s come together and dance.

We are the movement and we are the groove.

Our bodies extend into each other until complete dissolving.

Here and now, the dance floor is ours.

Out of space and out of time, only devotion counts.

Tanzwut brings together like-minded people wanting to practice the transgression of their personal borders and the outbreak of social norms through dance.

Throughout the centuries dance appeared repeatedly as a means of liberation and ecstasy and at the same time as a way of disciplining and healing the body. The medieval dancing plague, the Tarantella, religious and spiritual practices as well as the Clubbing Culture are only some examples fort this. Inspired by these phenomena Tanzwut explores the role of dance in today’s society and declare the theatre as a space of liberation.

From dance to trance

Anne-Mareike Hess explores the edges of a liberating discipline


“(...) Her [Anne-Mareike Hess’] approach is arduous, as it is stripped of everything that is not strictly relevant to her argument. However, she impresses with her requirement for both choreography and technique. (...) The way the choreography occupies the space with only four dancers is quite remarkable. (...) A performance that is remarkable to observe, especially the one executed by Anne-Mareike Hess who manages to give the impression that she has no control over her body anymore, while she actually controls the slightest

part of it in order to achieve the simulation of the symptom.”
