The 2024 dance theatre production “West-Land-Tänze” by Düsseldorf’s THEATER DER KLÄNGE was preceded by an extensive research phase in 2023.
The book “Palimpsest” summarises the research results on the subject of folk dance, folk music and folk in the Rhineland and Westphalia on almost 90 pages and thus offers a comprehensive compendium on cultural dance and music practices in West Germany, enriched by specialist essays by renowned academics and journalists.

“Palimpsest” serves as an up-to-date reference work on questions of folk music and folk dance. By combining the academic research and artistic practice documented in this book, “West-Land-Tänze” has become an original event that presents the cultural roots of the region in a contemporary light.
