Festsaal | 15/10 €

Pas de Q enters the classical ballet world to turn choreographic forms and traditions upside down and reinvent them. A queer ensemble of male and non-binary dancers
pushes movement, dance and queer aesthetics to the extreme. In a utopian science fiction world, the team fuses drag art and pointe dance into a labyrinth of imaginative perversions, beyond morality and shame.

In the scenic adaptation of his own text, the Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf deals with loss from a queer perspective: the loss of family, home and relationships, but also that of meaning and language. The audience enters a place where fragments overlap. Two figures move through scenes whose internal coherence continues to unravel through memories, anecdotes, and associative references.

Tanztage Berlin 2023
© Jan Grygoriew

JANUAR 05 – 21

Hey, why do you look so tired? "Urgency culture" expects us to be connected and responsive constantly. There is little to no time left to imagine the world otherwise. Tanztage Berlin – a yearly festival highlighting the work of the city's emerging dance makers – is back to diagnose the present and predict the future. Its 32nd edition investigates our daily overstimulation and chronic fatigue by reflecting on how we move to the rhythm of today's high-speed, social media-driven reality and its challenges.

An event of the Goethe-Institut Frequenzen.Feminismen global

From 19 to 21 May 2022, the Goethe-Institut is staging the interdisciplinary festival Frequencies. Sharing Feminisms. Over three days, the festival will open up resonant spaces for feminist debates and movements – multiperspectival, intersectional and diverse – at the Pfefferberg area and the Sophiensaele in Berlin. The programme of the international three-day festival “Frequencies. Sharing Feminisms” includes discussions, workshops, performances, readings, participatory formats, music and films.

At Sophiensæle, performance artist RIMA NAJDI presents her new work I Grew an Alien Inside of Me for the first time on May 20 + 21 as part of the festival programme. In the multidisciplinary piece, Najdi explores the movements of the body and the experience of time in two different contexts, that of birth and that of a political and social revolution.

In addition, on both days, the performance project Bodies of Care invites a participatory exploration of the relationship between care and choreography. Also on May 20 + 21, the project Modes of Operation will take place, which, through an installation and workshops – live and online – together with different artists, deals with the construction of an online archive of different working methods in the theatre.

The festival Frequenzen. Feminisms global is a project of the Goethe-Institut in partnership with Missy Magazine and Deutschlandfunk Kultur. In cooperation with the SOPHIENSÆLEN and the ICI Berlin.
