Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz
© Jan Grygoriew


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.

Suitable for Non-German Speakers

AGE: 5 - 99

A track jacket tower with legs, a golden creature with a button and a walking nonsense: Welcome to the Monster family! Four dancers disappear in crazy costume objects where it’s hard to tell up from down and where to look for legs and the heads. In a cardboard box landscape, the family arranges itself, determining the world according to their own rules. All the while, every monster’s uniform tells us a whole lot about its character and its specific kind of movement. Chaotically, they double and replicate, regroup and get worn on the head or inside-out. We are the monsters is a show about ludicrous oddities, about the fascination of the unknown. It celebrates diversitiy.


There is a 20-minutes workshop meet the monsters right after the show – to get to know the strange creatures better. No registration needed.
