Festsaal | 15/10 €

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.

JANUAR 05 – 21

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.

JANUARy 09 - 19

In the 28th edition of Tanztage Berlin, the city's young choreographers once again present themselves in all their diversity. This year many of the productions deal with the perception of one's own body and that of others. What do we attribute to a body, when do we see it as unpredictable and in need of help, when as controllable and strong? In theory, there are no limits to the possibilities, but in practice we are exposed to social norms that restrict our view. Bodies are pressed into forms, but also question them and blow them up. The fictitious potential of bodies opens up undreamt-of dimensions: They reinvent themselves using drag techniques or approach non-human organisms using mimicry. Two choreographers from Egypt will be guests at Around the World this year, providing insights into the Cairo dance scene.   

This year, for the first time, audio descriptions and Haptic Access Tours will be offered for selected performances, and the feedback format Let's Talk About Dance once again initiates an exchange between artists and audience. A choreographed conversation brings together Berlin activists, politically engaged dance professionals and audience members alike, to discuss how the dance community and civil society can mutually support each other in their fight against the rise of the right.
