About Us

These materials were developed in the scope of the "Kunstlabor Tanz" initiative (Art Lab for Dance) and are based on practical experience gained in the "TanzZeit" project.

Over the course of a three-and-a-half-year period, a development team made up of artists and teachers collected knowledge and experience regarding the practical implementation of contemporary dance projects in schools, systematised it and prepared it for transfer to the Calypso digital practice platform.

The development team members:

  • An Boekman
  • Hanna Hegenscheidt
  • Ulrich Huhn
  • Livia Patrizi
  • Felix Schulze

The implementation team was composed of graphic designers, programmers, print editors, radio editors, illustrators and filmmakers.

You can find more information about our Calypso further education programme on the TanzZeit website.

Some of these materials are also available in analogue formats. To receive more information in this regard or to share your ideas or feedback on Calypso, please feel free to drop us a line at
