Back to the future: In Die Vielhundertjährigen, the audience is contacted by the only contemporary witnesses of a long-gone division between the biological and the digital. These people, several hundred years old, are now inhabitants of a post-digital world. Based on fantasies and wishes for the world, the ensemble, ranging in age from 65 to 87, create their own science fiction narrative.

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.

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.

Language no problem

Inspired by the historical phenomenon of dancing manias, Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen explores mass outbreaks of dancing. In an intense mixture of ecstatic outbursts and relentless beats, her latest solo, “The Dancing Public”, is a dance party, a spoken word concert and an expression of physical madness to the point of exhaustion. In the aftermath of a pandemic, this shape-shifting piece asks: What is this extreme need for movement that we feel in our bodies today? Are we ready to taste life to the full again?
