The German Dance Platform 2008 took place in Hannover.
From February 21st - 24th 2008 an open space was offered for four days to share artistic viewpoints, encounters and controversies.
The 2008 publication includes three essays in which the work if the jury will be presented, the issue of conditions under which artist produce will be discussed as well as the impact of outstanding artists.
The program selection was made by an independent board: Franz Anton Cramer, Joachim Gerstmeier und Christiane Winter.
The board invited ten artists / works to present their work at German Dance Platform 2008 because of the great variety of styles, modes of operation, artistic position and statements.
50 portraits of choreographers and companies presented in the publication 2008 demonstrate the manifold artistic viewpoints of the contemporary dance in Germany.
