JANUARY 07 to ∞

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.

FEBRUARY 10 – 24
FEBRUARY 10 | 19.00 PM

Pop music often uses the little word TONIGHT in songs as a bittersweet promise. Humorously and with the proper rock star poses, Melanie Jame Wolf, together with Sheena McGrandles and Rodrigo Garcia Alves, gets to the bottom of this pop cultural poetics and its commercial exploitation.

FEBRUARY 20 – MARCH 06
FEBRUARY 20 | 19.00 PM

In Figured and Flush, Sheena McGrandles explores radical temporality. With great attention to detail, Figured exposes the absurdity and artificiality of everyday gestures. Flush, following Gertrude Stein, breaks down linear and traditional forms of storytelling-perhaps even evoking a new lesbian temporality and aesthetic.

          At the beginning of the 20th century the Swiss composer and music educator Émile Jaques-Dalcroze developed eurythmics. The intention was to find an expression of a "new human being" through the combination of music and movement. In slave to the rhythm five dancers approach this ideology from today's perspective. Accompanied by a rather strict pianist, a Dadaist fitness training develops: harmony tilts into totalitarianism, the mechanical into the living, while the rhythm increasingly leads a life of its own.
