In the piece, which is both music theatre and dance performance, the audience itself becomes part of a living sound installation. Electronic sounds emanate from their own mobile phone loudspeakers, which change depending on the distance to the performers and merge into a single collective body of sound.

TO ALL emerging DANCE ARTISTS BASED IN BERLIN

Every new year, the Tanztage Berlin is not only the city's very first festival, it has also established itself nationally and internationally as an important platform for emerging dance artists since its founding in 1996. The next edition of Tanztage Berlin will once again take place under the artistic direction of Mateusz Szymanówka. The festival is currently planned for 5-21 January 2023 - however, the form as well as the exact date will depend on the constant reassessment of the pandemic. The festival offers emerging dance artists based in Berlin a framework for their new productions and revivals. The programme of the last two editions can be found at: https://tanztage-berlin.sophiensaele.com.

In German spoken and sign language (DGS) / With German subtitles

The language of our senses gives us the form in which we cast our perception of reality. Everything is finely tuned to each other. So that we can make contact with this reality without much thought. But who am I and what remains of me when this precisely synchronised orchestra, this habitual interplay of the senses, is disturbed? When perception changes - and I am powerless over it. Is the world we can see, hear, feel, taste and smell so naturally reality? Or is there another reality that goes beyond our senses?

Between coming of age and horror trip, enhanced with text fragments by Heinrich Heine, Rainer Maria Rilke and Lewis Carroll, the duo Athina Lange and Pawel Aderhold develop a performance in spoken and sign language that illuminates a special way of being between the senses. While whatremainsofme is reminiscent of an illustrated psychosis à la Sarah Kane, the piece poses questions about our "normal" form of existence anew - and sharpens the view for a different kind of reality.

The piece lasts about 45-60 minutes. It is very visual and uses German Sign Language (DGS), German spoken language and partly subtitles. The piece is suitable for both audiences with and without knowledge of German Sign Language. Intense, reflective light effects will be used, as well as possibly strobe lights. The performance uses a lot of heavy bass sounds and vibrations. Hearing protection is provided at the entrance. The piece is suitable for audiences from 14 years and older. The audience area on the grandstand is seated. There are two wheelchair spaces and one beanbag seat that can be reserved by phone or booked via the online ticket shop or at the box office, if available. Admission begins 20-30 minutes prior to show time. We recommend arriving early to select a suitable seat. Please note that the accessibility information is subject to possible changes. It will be updated continuously. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Gina Jeske at jeske@sophiensaele.com or 030 27 89 00 35.
