Melanie Jame Wolf TONIGHT

tonight
February 10 | 19.00 Dance/film
Online | Tickets 5 Euro

This revival of TONIGHT takes place online. Because time has a very different quality on screen than on stage, and because the logic of video is different to the logic of theater, Melanie Jame Wolf has reimagined this version TONIGHT as a film. In this sense, it is a second edition of the work that offers a fresh take to both, those who are familiar with the work and those new to it.

Online | Tickets 5 Euro

Figured and Flush are companion works by choreographer Sheena McGrandles that are part of an ongoing series on radical temporalities and illogical intimacies. Since the performances cannot be brought to the stage due to the pandemic, both works are reworked as dance for screen.

JANUARY 07 to ∞

Due to the current pandemic situation, the 30th edition of the Tanztage Berlin will start as an online program from January 7 to 16. All planned live performances will then be made up for in spring 2021.
The film showdown AV by choreographer Judith Förster and filmmaker Stella Horta will kick off the festival on January 7. Clay AD will present the first digital premiere of the festival on January 15 with the performance Indication of Spring at the End of Time. We also invite you to an online Zukunftswerkstatt – a series of discussions about work culture and mental health, organized in cooperation with the ZTB (Zeitgenössischer Tanz Berlin) association. Pedro Marum will also curate an online format focusing on new artistic practices of care in club culture. In addition to this, the festival presents the first three episodes of its podcast, which was prepared in collaboration with the queer-feminist rave collective LECKEN.

          Remote-Performance

          2020 June 16 17 18 | 20.00

          GER + EN with german live description, spoken and sign language

          It's show time! We celebrate the reversal of circumstances: In the NO LIMIT cosmos, disabled people are the majority. And the norm. Their promise to the minority is called "inclusion". People with special needs (non-disabled) should now be allowed to participate. Therefore, a great gesture is made to raise awareness of their concerns and to offer the prospect of solidarity.

          This is how we wanted to make theatre. Now reality has caught up with us. With Covid-19, the individual experience of being limited in one's own possibilities is seeping into the collective social body. The Show can't go on, but we press the buzzer and stay on the screen. We move the show into the virtual, because now is exactly the right moment to tweak the concept of norm and ask ourselves a couple questions: To which norm do we actually want to return after this "exceptional situation"? And do we want to continue glorifying strategies of self-exploitation in the norm of the future?

          NO LIMIT is a remote performance. In a webinar format, spectators and performers meet live and interactively. Don't worry, there’s no obligation to participate and you’ll remain invisible. If you just want to stare, you’re very welcome; there’s no need to take a shower and make yourself presentable! But don't think that you don't have a standing in the matter of reorganisation or, viceversa, that you can steal out of responsibility! We are all change-makers now! Whether you like it or not!

          With digital touch tour and integrated live description in German language
          In the touch tour at the beginning of the online performance, the digital stage space will be explored and an introduction to the webinar and procedures will be given. The live description during the performance gives blind and visually impaired spectators access to the visual elements of the performance: movement, gestures, facial expressions, stage design, costumes and props are described. In the chat column there are additional descriptions that can be listened to via screen reader.

          RELAXED PERFORMANCE
          This performance is as relaxed as your home environment: Make yourself comfortable and adjust the sound volume and light level on your computer to your needs. If you want, you can turn on and off during the show, retreat to another room for a break or simply close your laptop. Silence is, of course, not obligatory.
