In the piece, which is both music theatre and dance performance, the audience itself becomes part of a living sound installation. Electronic sounds emanate from their own mobile phone loudspeakers, which change depending on the distance to the performers and merge into a single collective body of sound.

Inspired by the historical phenomenon of dance frenzy - the solo dance mixes ecstatic eruptions with pounding beats and is party, spoken word concert and expression of physical madness to exhaustion all in one.

Every new year, the Tanztage Berlin is not only the city's very first festival, it has also established itself nationally and internationally as an important platform for emerging dance artists since its founding in 1996. The next edition of Tanztage Berlin will once again take place under the artistic direction of Mateusz Szymanówka. The festival is currently planned for 5-21 January 2023 - however, the form as well as the exact date will depend on the constant reassessment of the pandemic. The festival offers emerging dance artists based in Berlin a framework for their new productions and revivals. The programme of the last two editions can be found at:

MARCH 1–13

In the third round of our spring series QUEER DARLINGS we again bring old and new favorites to Berlin. This time, their works focus on contemporary translations of archetypal figures and myths. The productions of the five invited performance makers and choreographers are animated by biblical figures, ancient deities as well as modern and contemporary icons of the entertainment industry. How do these collective images, their continuations and rewritings, shape our understanding of gender and race? And how can their potential for resistance be activated? The artists of the festival appropriate archetypes in order to remove the basis of stereotypes. They create new mythologies in order to establish communities that are as tender as they are political.

WITH Frédéric Gies, Cherish Menzo, Vincent Riebeek, Teresa Vittucci + Colin Self, tiran, and others.

A program focus of the SOPHIENSÆLE. Sponsored by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe. Media partner: Siegessäule, PW-Magazine, taz, die Tageszeitung.
