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.
The Creep at feldfünf is the first in a series of installations by Berlin based choreographer and visual artist, Melanie Jame Wolf, in which she will enact her ongoing creep studies. It is a choreography between two figures – a cowboy and a mountain – embodying a poetic meditation on violence and storytelling.
Жизела / Giselle uses dance and language to explore the similarities and differences between the artist Jelena Stefanoska and the tragic ballet character Giselle. The piece tells of the need to love and be loved – and, above all, of the desire and feeling to live a life with dignity.
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.
