Tanztage Berlin 2021


JANUAR 07 bis ∞

Since hard times require furious dancing, the 30th edition of Tanztage Berlin under the new curation of Mateusz Szymanówka investigates dance’s anti-authoritarian tradition. From January 7th onwards, in the dystopian “now” after the afterparty, the festival presents twelve performances by emerging choreographers which examine the body in revolt - in its fragility, mortality and ability to transform itself and the others.

          Unfortunately the shows are cancelled. It is planed to make up for them in spring 2021. All purchased tickets will be automatically refunded.

          Isabelle Schad celebrates the beauty of simple movement sequences in two powerful solos. In Rotations, the movements of the dancer Claudia Tomasi rotate and accumulate into an energetic flow, creating the illusion that her body is moving by itself. Between precision and loss of control, the choreography creates an astonishing energy. In Knotting, the dancer Francesca d'Ath deals with the knot in fluid, space-filling movements. A deep blue surface in the stage set creates references between heaven and earth, between reality and dream. She creates a space that makes parts of the body appear like cut-outs with fluid, soft forms by the painter Henri Matisse. The choreography is an ongoing game of repetition and change – with movement that never begins, never ends.


          ISABELLE SCHAD is a dancer and choreographer, studied classical dance and worked with numerous choreographers before she started to develop her own projects in 1999. Her research focuses on the body and its materiality, explores the relationships between body, choreography, (re)presentation, form and experience, and considers physical practice as a place for learning processes, community and political participation. Her projects operate at the interface of dance, performance and visual arts and are shown at festivals, theaters and museums worldwide.
