No one’s coming, everyone’s going! On July 24, 2020, an enormous festival will take place in Berlin where a stunning number of independent artists and culture makers working in all disciplines will take part – by not showing up. During the coronavirus pandemic, many freelance artists and culture makers have been unable to earn money and pay their living costs. This is why we’re turning to you: Show your solidarity! Buy a ticket for Berlin’s (non) event of the year and don’t show up!

          >> FURTHER show on June 3rd (NOT AS PART of the Performing arts festival) <<

          In a virtuoso show with five muses and the god Apollon, Florentina Holzinger examines attributions of the feminine. What does the perfect woman want and what does the audience want from her? Inspired by Balanchine's ballet quartet Apollon Musagète from 1928, this wild new production with an all-female cast tears the god from his throne. Ballet and acrobatics meet freak show, fitness, splatter and trash: a delightful balancing act between high culture and entertainment! If you can't stand the sight of blood, you should consider skipping the show.

          Florentina Holzinger studied choreography at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in  the Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten. She currently tours her work on performance festivals around Europe. Her performance Kein Applaus fuer Scheisse, a collaboration with Vincent Riebeek brought international attention to their work. Their newest collaboration Spirit premiered in October 2012 at Campo/Genth. Silk is a Solo Florentina created when graduating from the SNDO in May 2011. The performance got awarded the Prix Jardin d’Europe at Impulstanz 2012.

          FLORENTINA HOLZINGER, born 1986 in Austria, studied choreography at the SNDO Amsterdam. After graduating in May 2011, Florentina Holzinger presented the solo Silk and received the Prix Jardin d'Europe at Impulstanz. Joint works with Vincent Riebeek such as Kein Applaus für Scheiße (2011), Spirit (2012) and Wellness (2013) attracted international attention. Their works are shown at numerous festivals and in production companies at home and abroad. As part of the festival The Future is F*E*M*A*L*E*, Florentina Holzinger showed the Performance Recovery (2017), a collaboration with Frascati Producties. In the same year she also presented her piece Apollon for the first time at the Sophiensæle. Her latest work TANZ was invited to the 57th Theatertreffen in 2020 and can be seen at the Sophiensæle from March.
