"Spitzenförderung" (Promotion of Excellence Funding for Children and Youth Theater of the State of NRW)

tanzfuchs PRODUKTION is one of four companies which has received the three-year Promotion of Excellence Funding for Children and Youth Theater of the State of NRW (Spitzenförderung Kinder- und Jugendtheater des Landes NRW).

Jury's justification:

The jury awards the three-year funding to the ensemble of tanzfuchs PRODUKTION because Barbara Fuchs has, together with her team, created exceptional and valuable work which results from a long horizon / many years of experience. The funding for the development of theater for the very small is hereby applauded as especially valuable. The interest in reflecting on one's own creative work and the elaborate research projects which, in collaboration with other dance companies, intend to find original, aesthetic forms for young audiences, has convinced the jury.

The jury consists of:

  • Kirstin Hess (Dramaturgist and Theater Teacher at the Youth Theater Düsseldorf, Speaker for the Working Group for Children and Youth Theater in Nordrhein-Westfalen)

  • Georg Kentrup (theater director and leading dramaturgist at the Consol Theater Gelsenkirchen)

  • Jutta Staerk (dramaturgist and director of the COMEDIA Theater Cologne, Speaker for the Working Group of Children and Youth Theater in Nordrhein-Westfalen)

  • Sascha Westphal (Theater critic for the Frankfurter Rundschau, kulturwest.de, nachtkritik.de)

“Piece of Paper” at the WESTWIND Festival in Oberhausen

On June 16, 2019 “Piece of Paper” was presented at Theater Oberhausen as part of the WESTWIND Festival!

From the laudation of the WESTWIND Jury:

“Barbara Fuchs has choreographed a scenic concert with “Piece of Paper”. The performance creates an unbelievably loving and inviting atmosphere for the audience. It works for the very young and for every other age as well. Pure play, shimmering creativity, hilarity, nonsense and freedom prevail here. Highest art!"
