Pas de Q enters the classical ballet world to turn choreographic forms and traditions upside down and reinvent them. A queer ensemble of male and non-binary dancers
pushes movement, dance and queer aesthetics to the extreme. In a utopian science fiction world, the team fuses drag art and pointe dance into a labyrinth of imaginative perversions, beyond morality and shame.

Hochzeitssaal | 15/10 €

In the scenic adaptation of his own text, the Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf deals with loss from a queer perspective: the loss of family, home and relationships, but also that of meaning and language. The audience enters a place where fragments overlap. Two figures move through scenes whose internal coherence continues to unravel through memories, anecdotes, and associative references.

JANUAR 05 – 21

Hey, why do you look so tired? "Urgency culture" expects us to be connected and responsive constantly. There is little to no time left to imagine the world otherwise. Tanztage Berlin – a yearly festival highlighting the work of the city's emerging dance makers – is back to diagnose the present and predict the future. Its 32nd edition investigates our daily overstimulation and chronic fatigue by reflecting on how we move to the rhythm of today's high-speed, social media-driven reality and its challenges.

Guided Tour

Various Locations
In German

The Sophiensæle are located in the former craftsmen's club house, which has had an eventful history since its construction in 1904/1905.

With the use of the building by the Berlin labour movement, the most important political period for the house began. In the 10s and 20s of the last century the building was used as a meeting place for the revolutionary left, among others Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg spoke here. During the Nazi era, Dutch forced laborers worked in the Festsaal to produce Nazi leaflets, and in the GDR the Maxim Gorki Theater used the premises as workshops. In autumn 1996 the Sophiensæle were finally opened with the premiere of Sasha Waltz's successful piece Allee der Kosmonauten and has since developed into one of the most important production and performance venues for the liberal performing arts in the German-speaking world.

If you would like to learn more about the eventful history of the Sophiensæle, you can participate in a guided tour.
