Tanzkongress 2022 has strived to create an event that is as accessible as possible. In order to ensure our accredited guests a smooth stay at Tanzkongress, we would like to ask you to read the access rider and fill it in if necessary.
Access managers will be on hand at the Information Centre at the Staatstheater Mainz during the entire Tanzkongress 2022. They are happy to answer your questions or provide you with assistance, for example by accompanying you during a workshop, providing you with a wheelchair, by accompanying visually impaired people as they make their way around the congress, assisting them in their work, by assisting attendees with language issues, or in other capacities.
Wheelchair users will be able to access the majority of the congress programme. There are wheelchair-accessible toilets in all buildings, in the KUZ, the Staatstheater and the Frankfurter Hof, and there are lifts in the Staatstheater Mainz, the Frankfurter Hof, the KUZ and the Zentrum Baukultur.
Audio description and haptic access tour
For the following performances, Tanzkongress 2022, in cooperation with Gravity Access Services Berlin, offers a live audio description and a Haptic Access Tour for a blind and visually impaired audience. The Haptic Access Tour starts one hour before the performance. Please call +49 6131 2851 222 to register in advance and reserve a headset.
Hearing induction loops
Hearing induction loops are installed in the Großes Haus and the Kleines Haus of the Staatstheater Mainz. These can be used when attending events in the performance programme. Mobile induction loops are also available at the Information Centre and can be booked in advance via the access rider or, if they are still available, at the venue.
