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.

Florian Feigl + Christopher Hewitt Dissolved – the Uncanny Valley

florian_feigl_c_florian_feigl
2014 March 06 07 08 13 14 15 20 21 22 | 20.30
Kantine
Suitable for English Speakers

Sophiensaele’s historic Kantine and a gallery space in the converted Victorian Ragged School Beaconsfield in London merge and overlap to create a new space that is half there, half not there, caught in a perpetual cross-fade. A door opens wide in one space and slams shut in another. A wall exists and doesn’t, putting up an invisible barrier.


Performers give up their bodies and identities into this virtual world. Merging with the London artists they create enigmatic mixed creatures, that exist in a parallel reality only for the instant of the dissolve. Actions and their digital echoes can be watched simultaneously on the stage and the screen, and invite speculation on the instability of culture and identity in a time when borders between traditional and virtual realities fade. People and objects find they are both one thing and another, sometimes dissolving together to make a third, in a disconcerting, arresting and occasionally hilarious
performance.


For Dissolved, Berlin based artists Florian Feigl and Christopher Hewitt collaborate with the pioneers of telematic theatre, legendary British performance group Station House Opera. A new video streaming technology, developed specifically for the piece, allows to dissolve the two versions of the piece into one another. Audiences watch both the live performance and its traces in the virtual world at the same time.
