"A COMPLEXION CHANGE - Transnational & Intercultural Diplomacy - The Future is Now" presents an example of the approach of Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre to utilize art, culture, education and dialogue to address issues, which contribute to a peaceful and constructive co-existence of people from various national, cultural, ethnic, religious and socio-economic backgrounds and sexual identities.

It is part of our 33 year long history as an institution that provides a forum which supports exchange, understanding and cooperation through intercultural and interdisciplinary endeavors.

An integral part of these productions is the annual intercultural Black International Cinema Berlin, which in 2013 was presented for the 28th edition. Additional productions are our weekly television magazine THE COLLEGIUM - Forum & Television Program Berlin, the photographic exhibition and visual documentation "Footprints in the Sand?" Exhibition, as well as publications, artistic presentations and seminars.
