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.

Tanztage Berlin 2023
© Jan Grygoriew

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.

For two weeks THE FUTURE IS F*E*M*A*L*E* will transform the Sophiensaele into a Feminist-Utopian community for all – women*, trans*, inter* and men*. The festival creates a platform for Berlin-based and international artists, and invites all to examine feminist issues and topics: aesthetically and with humor, spectacularly and unspectacularly – but always together.

We want to make you laugh until you cry! We want to get your opinions and see your dance moves! We want to practice boxing, learn together, discuss and drink schnaps or lemonade with you! With performances, action-packed club nights, theater, dance, stand-up comedy, lectures, workshops and parties we want to create a space for various feminist stances. We look forward to seeing you!
