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.

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.

Hochzeitssaal | 15/10 €

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.

Festival TANZTAGE BERLIN 2017
1479479782

For 21 years now Tanztage Berlin has been a solid institution for the Berlin dance landscape and the most important date for up-and-coming choreographers of the city. In its 26th festival edition the artists are diving deep into the structures which surround us on a daily basis: in eight premieres and four revivals of past productions they will examine the measurability and illusion of time and will make the algorithms, which are imperceptible but yet constantly surround us in the internet, tangible to us in the analogue world. They transfer methods of musical composition into choreography and examine everyday gestures like an embrace as well as hauled out of daily life gestures of ritual worship. They dance with the mind, think with the body, they fight against reality and let vampires sink their teeth into the existential structures of desire and death!

Every year anew the Tanztage Berlin connect with a different non-European dance scene – this time five artists from Tehran present their work. Other guests include three former Tanztage-artists who ask themselves whether the success in the past few years of documentary theater can also inspire dance to take a new look at reality. In short solo pieces they try out various documentary work processes.

Creating just as much commotion as the pieces themselves is the return of the feedback format Let’s Talk About Dance! Of course we can’t skip over the legendary festival parties at which the Berliner choreographers can be experienced live in performances, music projects and as DJs!

We cordially invite you to kick-off another Tanzyear with us together!
