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.

FEBRUARY 10 – 24
FEBRUARY 10 | 19.00 PM

Pop music often uses the little word TONIGHT in songs as a bittersweet promise. Humorously and with the proper rock star poses, Melanie Jame Wolf, together with Sheena McGrandles and Rodrigo Garcia Alves, gets to the bottom of this pop cultural poetics and its commercial exploitation.

FEBRUARY 20 | 19.00 PM

In Figured and Flush, Sheena McGrandles explores radical temporality. With great attention to detail, Figured exposes the absurdity and artificiality of everyday gestures. Flush, following Gertrude Stein, breaks down linear and traditional forms of storytelling-perhaps even evoking a new lesbian temporality and aesthetic.

          The glaciers are melting, the seals are dying, the earth is shaking. The limbs tremble, the eggs shrink, the seed ebbs. The men whine, the flirt is dead, the act is threatened. SAVE THEM! Climate change affects us all! The two selfless fucktresses Anne and Melanie from Project Schooriil don't close their eyes and get active. They bravely face the new times, because when giants fall, strong role models are needed. Project Schooriil is ready. So you better be ready, too!

          Since 2013 Anne Haug and Melanie Schmidli have been producing the satirical-feminist late-night-show Project Schooriil at Sophiensæle - a series whose episodes are developed under high pressure and in a few days. In this way, sixteen evenings have been created so far, in which the duo dealt with the prevailing myths of the acting profession and the regulating conditions of the industry. For example, the permanent sexualization of actresses, the discriminating gender relations, the patriarchal, heterocentric work structures and the infinitely stunted female role spectrum.
