Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company (was: The Forsythe Company)
The Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company combines contemporary thinking and dance tradition by experimenting and rethinking and developing traditional notions of choreography. Ioannis Mandafounis' understanding of dance is unmistakable: the application of the methodology he has developed brings a dance and choreographic result to the stage that is improvised but seems planned. This empowers the artists and creates a shared process between the dancers and the audience.
The Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company is at home at the two residency venues HELLERAU - European Centre for the Arts in Dresden and the Bockenheimer Depot in Frankfurt am Main and regularly tours as an internationally sought-after ensemble. It offers a comprehensive range of educational and mediation services with the aim of facilitating cultural and aesthetic experiences regardless of origin, socialisation, education, age and physical condition.
