The children Charlotte and Felix emerge from the sea and play as their dead parents on the beach. It's a ritual the two have been practicing for years. In memory of their parents' wild exuberance, they put sunscreen on their backs and tickle each other until they can hardly breathe. For brief moments,all sadness falls away from them. Again and again, however, the different needs of the two ten- and eleven-year-old siblings break into the game.

Festival TANZTAGE BERLIN 2014
1385395257

Dear Audience

In contrast to the grey Berlin winter, Tanztage Berlin is back in 2014 with a colorful festival of emerging dance artists. This year’s program is once again queer and international. It presents great differences in how choreographers see their work. Whether they consider it a formal arrangement, an expression of ideas or self, a political project, a narrative or a momentary experience: the audience is invited to emerge themselves into a myriad of artistic visions. At the same time, they can ponder on the positions that these dances take in the ever-widening field of choreography. Once again, Tanztage Berlin provides a momentary snapshot of the intertwined and complex connections of the Berlin dance scene.

This year we have decided to write about the artists from our point-of-view. We wanted to make the curation process more transparent and reveal what we thought was important about each artist’s work. Curating, for us, is an opportunity to initiate dialogues between the audience and the artists, the artist and ourselves and, of course, the audience and ourselves. This is how we pick up on trends and give impulses into the dance world. As a result, our programming stands as one possible definition of what contemporary dance means in Berlin today.

Those who support emerging artists need, above all, interest, patience and openness. The audiences of Tanztage Berlin have always excelled in these qualities. We are looking forward to a lively exchange with all of you again!

In growing anticipation, 

Peter Pleyer and Arianne Hoffmann
