INVENTUR 2 wants to analyse the current situation within contemporary dance and performance art, across genre boundaries and in a cross-sectoral manner. 12 years after the first INVENTUR, which took place in Vienna in 2005, the field’s most prominent performers discuss central topics within the latest developments of contemporary dance and art, all the while taking in consideration current political, ecological and economic crises. In 9 panels, both the inventory as well as the inventory-taking itself will be up for discussion.

An event of the Arts Foundation of North Rhine-Westphalia in collaboration with the tanzhaus nrw, supported within the framework of the Alliance of International Production Houses by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media. INVENTUR 2 takes place within the framework of the European Dancehouse Network (EDN), co-funded by Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
