Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz

JANUARY 06-22

In tandem with emerging dance artists connected to our city, Tanztage Berlin 2022 continues to examine what keeps us together and tears us apart. After 2021 the festival took place exclusively online, its 31st edition returns as an extended offline and online program. Alongside the last year’s selection of performances, it includes new creations and discourse formats on power, protest, and empowerment. The work presented during Tanztage Berlin 2022 critically navigates the present by reimagining past and future encounters on the dance floor. While dealing with acute problems like power relations, surveillance, disembodiment, or climate change, it tunes into the social body, creating much-needed moments of awareness, connectedness, and self-determination. Unlike the 21st-century billionaire strategy of abandoning earth in a rocket ship or escaping into a parallel virtual universe, the festival chooses instead to stay with the trouble: to celebrate dancing together through the crisis and against despair.

A temporary collective of female identified artists with Eastern Mediterranean origins are delving into the complexity of the region. Together and apart we are uncovering the configurations of cultures, nations and identities, and how they mesh together into our conflicted histories, narratives, desires and dreams. What distinguishes us from our citizenships and how can we de-nationalize ourselves without erasing our cultural identities? How do we speak and work together taking into consideration privilege, political-social conflicts and struggles, and cultural differences? Can working together be a way of resisting systemic oppression? Through the eyes of our ancestors and our female role models from previous generations we are looking at the capacities and intentions to making art in a time and place of heightened patriarchy. Many things have changed, some things haven’t - one still finds herself needing to look for or find a new home. We are reclaiming the right to have a complex identity, to exchange and correspond with the bodies living next to us, to travel to unknown destinations passing through new homes and exiles. In the tradition of the cabaret the performance tackles intense political and intimate matters with tunes and wiggles, drinks and nibbles, all for your European gaze.
