DANCE ON is an initiative of DIEHL+RITTER. It honours the artistic excellence of dancers over 40, and examines the relationship between dance and age both on stage and off. The project has recently concluded its pilot phase, which ran from 2014–18. Under the artistic directorship of Christopher Roman the company has created 11 works and worked with 15 internationally renowned choreographers and directors, including Rabih Mroué, William Forsythe, Deborah Hay and Jan Martens. Tanz im August presents the first production of the newly assembled company, a piece after a choreography by Merce Cunningham, a key figure in the career of the ensemble’s artistic director and member, Ty Boomershine.
