fabrik Potsdam

The fabrik Potsdam is a theatre for modern dance and is based in the Shipbuilder’s Lane. By now it has found its audience nationwide. Since the founding of the Association to Support Dance and Theatre in 1990, the fabrik Potsdam developed into a well-known international center for dance and the art of movement.

The fabrik-company offers a rich program offering both their own productions as well as performances by young, international dancers and well known, significant choreographers. The Potsdamer Tanztage (Potsdam Dance Days), an international modern dance festival that takes place every year, are an especially important highlight on the calendar of events. Modern dance is an artistic style which links classical and modern stylistic devices with folk traditions and the everyday life. It is experimental and explorative and therefore performed in this manner. Every year there are open workshops and courses where participants can experience the language of the human body as a central means of expression.

In 2006 the project “Artists in Residence” was realized. It is a research program founded by the fabrik Potsdam and supported by the Federal Cultural Foundation (Bundeskulturstiftung) of Brandenburg and Potsdam. It gives dancers, choreographers, and performers as well as theoreticians or other artists the opportunity to develop new basic approaches toward the wide area of dance and the art of movement.

fabrik Potsdam has been using the Offizze and the riding halls in the Harness Yard (Schiffbauergasse Nr. 4 g) as well as a newly-built Studio with four large, modern rehearsal rooms and studios for dance/movement.
