Announcement of thanks to all candidates for edition 26. Internationales Solo-Tanz-Theater Festival Stuttgart 2022

I would like to thank all 206 applicants who sent entries from 40 countries including Germany, Australia, Brazil, Belgium, Burkina Faso, Canada, Ivory Coast, Malaysia, South Korea, El Salvador, Slovak, Spain, United States of America, France, Finland , Netherlands, Hungary, Greece, Israel, Italy, Iran, Japan, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Morocco, New Caledonia, Mexico, Nigeria, Ukraine, Poland, United Kingdom, Dominican Republic, Romania, Serbia, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Uganda. On the curators rested a huge responsibility as they had to choose 18 choreographies out of an abundance of great works. The quality, talents and creativity of their choreographers as well as of countless young interpreters left us almost speechless. It was a very exciting process. I want to wish the works that didn’t make it to the finals the best of luck for next year. May they continue to inspire us and support us to maintain this platform for contemporary choreography.
