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.

This revival of TONIGHT takes place online. Because time has a very different quality on screen than on stage, and because the logic of video is different to the logic of theater, Melanie Jame Wolf has reimagined this version of TONIGHT as a film. In this sense, it is a second edition of the work. Offering a fresh take to both those who are familiar with TONIGHT, and those new to the work and the artist.

          The collaboration of the artists with the biologists of the Simone Reber Laboratory for Quantitative Biology was crucial for the research process of Living Matters. Many of the methods used there on a daily basis, such as imaging techniques, can be found in the piece in one way or another. In a public discussion round, researchers from the laboratory and the Living Matters team will exchange views on the (in)similarities of aesthetic and scientific research and the potential of transdisciplinary collaboration. The discussion will be moderated by Yvonne Zindel, who works as an art and culture mediator and artistic assistant at the Berlin University of the Arts.
