May 26 | 15.00
May 27 28 29 30
Online-Installation
Online | Eintritt frei

As part of PAF Introducing ..., the online-installation negotiates issues of class, gender and migration. In a subtle way it plays with conventions of fashion shows and refers to a current phenomenon in which so-called "workwear" finds its way into high fashion contexts. What's classy if you're rich, but trashy if you're poor?

Tanztage Berlin 2021

JANUARY 07 to ∞

Dear Audience, dear Friends of Tanztage Berlin,

due to the ongoing uncertain planning situation, after three attempts of postponing the festival since January 2021, we have to inform you with a heavy heart that the event won’t take place this year. The twelve performances we were supposed to present received an invitation to participate in its next edition in January 2022. The artists received their production/revival grants, cancellation fees, and rehearsal space and dramaturgical support throughout the season. The works are finished and ready to be presented live. On July 1st, we are going to publish an open call for Tanztage Berlin 2022. We would like to thank the artists and our audience for their patience and understanding. We were very happy about the interest in our online kickoff of the Tanztage in January – you can still find the podcasts of the online kickoff on our website

          In some scenes self-harming acts are portrayed, which could have a disturbing effect on some viewers. Please note that stroboscopic effects are used in this performance.

          „Feminism, of course, has always been an exercise in science fiction.“ — Laurie Penny

          Florentina Holzinger has enriched the international performance scene with dizzying acrobatics, muscular women’s bodies and martial-arts fight scenes since 2011 – a generous helping of pop-cultural references and a penchant for trash included. TANZ completes her trilogy – Recovery and Apollon were the first two parts – about the body as a spectacle, and its disciplining. A ballet class under the direction of Beatrice Cordua, the first ballerina to dance Le sacre de printemps naked (John Neumeier’s Le Sacre, 1972), provides the framework for TANZ. The performers undergo rigorous training in “action ballet”, the so-called “sylphic studies”. In joint rituals, they learn to master their bodies and minds, and they acquire supernatural powers, such as flying. A quest for perfection in an ephemeral world, during which the gross is transformed into the sublime. In an operatic setting, brutal parodies of sensationalist images emerge, as seen in ballet, comedy and pornography. The gaze regime finds reflection in the character of a porn producer who documents the performance. With a cast of women between the ages of twenty and eighty, all of whom have different backgrounds in dance, TANZ raises the question of the legacy of dance. How can the cult of beauty inherent in this tradition be reconciled?

          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.
