Florentina Holzinger’s performances enjoy cult status.

Defying genre and smashing gender clichés, ‘TANZ’ dissects traditional dance and theatre narratives. The performers undergo a rigorous “training in action” ballet, learning how to use their skills in a genre of spectacle to penetrate space and gain knowledge about flying.

‘TANZ’ takes early 19th century romantic ballet as a starting point. Using the frame of a ballet class guided by Beatrice Schoenherr, the first ballerina who danced the Sacre de Printemps naked. This spectacular performance incorporates dizzying acrobatics, muscular women’s bodies and martial art fight scenes.

“Slapstick, splatter, surreal scenes, pauses, polyphonic a-capella, high-wire acrobatics on motocross bikes suspended from the fly tower, breathtaking, yet well-articulated stunts result in outstanding theatre” taz.de

We believe in making our shows accessible to as many people as possible.

We offer tickets on a Pay What You Can basis for the majority of performances throughout the year. Tickets usually start at £8, and we have recommended pricing to help you to choose a price that works for you.

We know that ticket price is a huge barrier for some, and the Pay What You Can model offers people who can afford to pay the recommended price or more the chance to support others who can’t.
