JANUARY 07 to ∞

Due to the current pandemic situation, the 30th edition of the Tanztage Berlin will start as an online program from January 7 to 16. All planned live performances will then be made up for in spring 2021.
The film showdown AV by choreographer Judith Förster and filmmaker Stella Horta will kick off the festival on January 7. Clay AD will present the first digital premiere of the festival on January 15 with the performance Indication of Spring at the End of Time. We also invite you to an online Zukunftswerkstatt – a series of discussions about work culture and mental health, organized in cooperation with the ZTB (Zeitgenössischer Tanz Berlin) association. Pedro Marum will also curate an online format focusing on new artistic practices of care in club culture. In addition to this, the festival presents the first three episodes of its podcast, which was prepared in collaboration with the queer-feminist rave collective LECKEN.

          The sisters have moved out to teach the others about fear. Nele Winkler, Juliana Götze and Rita Seredßus, three actresses with down-syndrome act and dance freely to scenes from Chekhov’s play Three Sisters.  They leave no room for doubt about how they picture their lives. The only thing they have in tow is their nanny, Anfissa (Angela Winkler), and her brother Andrej (Tammo Winkler). Everything else stays there where it belongs, in the Russian countryside.
