Terrestrial transit - kick off

The interdisciplinary project Terrestrial Transit deals with the activist practice of artistic intervention, which is gaining importance again in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe, in view of the strengthening of right-wing authoritarian regimes. The work of the dance company Cranky Bodies a/company, founded in August 2020 by Peter Pleyer and Michiel Keuper, refers in particular to political forms of protest in the tradition of Polish and Hungarian dance and performance art before the fall of the Wall.

History has failed us, but... deals with physical forms of protest and searches for a solidary togetherness while taking into account different bodies. Which narratives and images of resistance are remembered - and how are they told?

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:

Unfortunately, the Salomé show on January 27th has to be cancelled. Already purchased tickets will be refunded automatically via our ticket provider Reservix.

Salomé dances for her life, and we dance with her! At the fair she stomps from stall to stall, shuffling, tripping, dissolving, jumping, puffing, but always with abandon. Dancing her way through seven veils and kissing the severed head of John the Baptist. Tonight Salomé is much more than the fleeting supporting character from the Bible. Tonight she has outstanding concentration, a metaphysical imagination - and she carries a lot of love. 
After their celebrated performance Notre Carmen, the Berlin music theatre collective Hauen und Stechen now present their version of Salomé. Loosely based on the opera by Richard Strauss and the text by Oscar Wilde, the performance alternates between music and dance - and is a film, a journey, a fair and a dance of death all in one. The motifs of desire, guilt and innocence, lust and refusal tell a story of cutting and stabbing beyond stereotypical gender attributions: Salomé is many. The performers walk with the audience through the seven veil attractions of the Salomé universe as if through a theatre of hell. The audience does not enter a spiritual retreat, a purified field. Rather, it is a pulsating battle zone in which the mundane meets the spiritual. And so it comes as it must: Whoever lifts one veil must die. Whoever lifts all of them dies later - and wiser.
