"Tanz+Blau+Gelb Gala" presents and highlights the sophisticated art of dancers who had to leave their places of residence due to the current war against Ukraine. The gala aims to become a unique meeting point for Ukrainian artists who are coming from different corners of Europe to reunite for an evening and celebrate their artistry despite the severe difficulties.

The gala "Tanz+Blau+Gelb" expresses solidarity with Ukraine and places humanism at the center. The gala provides the possibility for refugee dance artists to be on stage, stay connected to their art form, and share their art with audiences.
