K3 – Zentrum für Choreographie | Tanzplan Hamburg at Kampnagel is a comprehensive centre for expertise in the field contemporary dance and choreography, artistic research and dance outreach.
A major focus of work at K3 is developing and offering various forms of residencies and artistic formats of working that combine artistic research, production and presentation. Promoting and supporting choreographers and dance professionals in the early stages of their career is a main priority.
In addition to providing information and advice, the centre offers dance makers and other professionals in the field regular courses and professional dance training, workshops as well as further learning formats.
K3´s outreach and education programmes aim towards fostering appreciation of dance in people of all ages. Projects are located at the crossroads of artistic practice – i.e. dance, choreography and performance – and discourse, both on the theory of dance and broader social issues. An important part of the work of K3 is to promote cultural appreciation among children and teenagers through a variety of collaborative projects and partnerships with schools and projects by and with teenagers, such as the K3 Youth Club.
