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?

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

          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.
