Association of German Dance Archives (VDT)

Since 2007, the mime centrum has cooperated with the Association of German Dance Archives (VDT), in which five national dance archives - the Archiv Darstellende Kunst of the Akademie der Künste Berlin, the Deutsches Tanzarchiv Köln (German Dance Archive Cologne), the Deutsches Tanzfilminstitut Bremen (German Dance Film Institute Bremen), the Tanzarchiv Leipzig (Dance Archive Leipzig) and the International Theatre Institute / mime centrum berlin (ITI/MCB) - have been working on an offensive for the promotion of the rich historical and contemporary sources of dance.

In this regard, the current focus is set on questions of continuous indexing and cataloguing of extensive stocks, the development of future-proof database structures and their national networking and, ultimately, the possibilities of digitalisation and online publication of content and documents.

The VDT is an informal working group moderated by the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland and its managing director Michael Freundt.
