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.

          Auf Deutsch - in German

          Die Institution is back: in a time when more than ever the need for dialogue and multiple perspectives is being sought, actor Armin Wieser takes a chance on a monologue somewhere between lecture-performance, video installation and minimalist musical theater. Therein he introduces an institution which doesn’t exist – based on relevant documents which purport the opposite. In a virtual game with what - was, is and could be, Herbordt/Mohren carry forward with their award-winning examination of institutions, the critic thereof and its reform.
