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.

TO ALL emerging DANCE ARTISTS BASED IN BERLIN

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: https://tanztage-berlin.sophiensaele.com.

Henrike Iglesias Livestream: Under Pressure

HI_Live-Stream
© Dorothea Tuch
Livestream
2020 September 10 11 12 13 | 20.00
Online
In German with english subtitles

To stream the performance, you need a computer or tablet, electricity and a stable Internet connection. To access the livestream, use the Reservix code on your ticket. In this competition you are the jury: For the judging you need a smartphone and you have to register on www.underpressure.live with the access code, which you can also find on your ticket. Please register in time before the show starts.

Henrike Iglesias is Under Pressure. In a brilliant, interactive gameshow, the collective devotes itself to the pressure to perform, which is omnipresent in our turbo-capitalist society. The performers compete against each other and the audience gets to decide who is "the best" Henrike. But the Henrikes will try to infiltrate the strict and violent categories of winners and losers, hot or not, photo or no photo; leading them ad absurdum - by failing, night after night, in front of a packed audience. Scores may be given live or by remote access, at the touch of a button. So, it’s gonna be absurd, but fair.

If you prefer to see the show in Sophiensæle's Festsaal, please click HERE.

ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION
There will be English subtitles. The conversation is as relaxed as your home environment: Make yourself comfortable and adjust the sound volume and light level on your computer to your needs. If you want, you can turn on and off during the show, retreat to another room for a break or simply close your laptop. Silence is, of course, not obligatory. The information on accessibility will be continuously updated. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact presse@sophiensaele.com or 030 29 87 00 35.

HENRIKE IGLESIAS understand pop cultural and mass media phenomena as a mirror of social conditions and grievances and have made it their mission to illuminate them from an explicitly feminist perspective. They are a theatre collective based in Berlin and Basel whose permanent crew includes Anna Fries, Laura Naumann, Marielle Schavan, Sophia Schroth, Eva G. Alonso and Malu Peeters. With their production OH MY, which was shown several times at the SOPHIENSÆLE, they were invited to imagetanz Vienna, the Heidelberg Stückemarkt and the FIBA Festival in Buenos Aires. https://henrikeiglesias.com/
