The DIN A 13 tanzcompany is internationally one of the few dance ensembles whose members are made up of dancers with and without physical disabilities. Since 1995, DIN A 13 tanzcompany and its artistic director and choreographer Gerda König, in collaboration with the choreographer Gitta Roser, have been enriching the dance world with new aesthetic categories that continually challenge and question the common viewing habits in contemporary dance.
Assumed boundaries and evaluations between physical characteristics and top dance performance are resolved in choreographic images that ask provocative questions and encourage an artistic dialogue.
The focus of the artistic work is on researching and making visible the quality of movement of “other bodies”, which in its diversity is used for choreographic work, expanding it and thereby enriching the spectrum of contemporary dance.
