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:

German premiere

In English

On March 13, the virtual talk format Talking Together - On Air will take place after the show, starting at 8:00 p.m. You can participate free of charge from the comfort of your home. 

UCHRONIA is a remake of our world. In his new performance, Vincent Riebeek explores the origins of dance and humanity itself by reinventing different scenarios for existing creation stories. Using collages and tableaux vivants, the performers invite the audience to imagine what might be possible. The piece begins with the mystery of the origin of the world and asks the question: what if God were a transwoman? Would we move differently if we had a different understanding of where we come from?
On stage, four dancers go through all the somatic stages of development while a god-like female figure in the sky makes them witnesses to the creation of the universe. What follows is the unfolding of the changing paths of human (d)evolution of the four performers, whose reality is one in which normative rules do not apply. In UCHRONIA – which literally means "no time," but is also related to utopia as "no place" – we forge the future we want. At the same time, the piece is an urgent call for radical self-love, because Everybody's got to own their body!

Vincent Riebeek studied dance at the School for New Dance Development and Theatre at DASarts. Since he has presented work in Europe and abroad and received praise for making provocative work that balances a fine line between art and entertainment. He graduated with a MA in Theatre from Dasarts, Amsterdam (2018). His graduation work One of a Kind was shown in theatres in several European cities and is currently still touring. In 2019 he taught at the Spring Academy (Utrecht) and the master course for dancers LaCollectiz in Tel Aviv where he created the opening performance for Diver festival with the students. After completing a series of residencies in 2019–2020 at Tanzhaus Zürich and Arsenic Lausanne, he presented the resultant work entitled The desire to create something that already exists at Frascati Amsterdam. in 2021 he danced for Singaporean artist Choy Ka Fay in his piece Post Colonial Spirits that premiered at Tanz Im August in Berlin.
