Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz
© Jan Grygoriew

JANUARY 06-22

In tandem with emerging dance artists connected to our city, Tanztage Berlin 2022 continues to examine what keeps us together and tears us apart. After 2021 the festival took place exclusively online, its 31st edition returns as an extended offline and online program. Alongside the last year’s selection of performances, it includes new creations and discourse formats on power, protest, and empowerment. The work presented during Tanztage Berlin 2022 critically navigates the present by reimagining past and future encounters on the dance floor. While dealing with acute problems like power relations, surveillance, disembodiment, or climate change, it tunes into the social body, creating much-needed moments of awareness, connectedness, and self-determination. Unlike the 21st-century billionaire strategy of abandoning earth in a rocket ship or escaping into a parallel virtual universe, the festival chooses instead to stay with the trouble: to celebrate dancing together through the crisis and against despair.

Every movement in our digitized everyday life produces data. Far-reaching conclusions about human behaviour can be reached from analyzing these “data shadows”. Simply the evaluation of Facebook “likes” can allow very reliable conclusions about personal characteristics to be made, such as gender, age, ethnicity, relationship status, political orientation and much more. Algorithms are able to make precise predictions about future behavior from the growing total quantity of all data – big data. Big data knows more about you than you do yourself.


In To Like or Not To Like, big data becomes a participative theatrical game. With the help the audience and a computer program written specially for this very show, a data collection is created over the course of the performance that will be different each time: big data in a miniature format. - What does this “Little Big Data” tell us about ourselves? How much of my data existence corresponds to my own sense of self? Which information do I want “Little Big Data” to reveal? 

Interrobang stages an algorithmic trip into the realm in which control has been digitally lost. Curiosity, voyeurism, and narcissism of digital “like”-culture will be questioned as well as a society of the 21st century, which is just beginning to recognize the risks and opportunities of digitalization and how to deal with them.

INTERROBANG include Till Müller-Klug, Nina Tecklenburg, Lajos Talamonti and Guests. The group develops new theatre formats in order to discuss current social phenomena and questions. In installative theatre spaces and participative game settings, the audience can experience, test and reflect on new scenic communication models. Playing with theatrical community thus becomes playing with present and possible future social forms and value systems. Interrobang performs on stages in the German-speaking countries and at international festivals (Heidelberger Stückemarkt, Impulse Theater Festival, Festival Akcent Prague, NONAME Festival Meyerhold Theatre Centre Moscow, Ivan Franko Theatre Kiev, etc.) interrobang-performance.com
