Back to the future: In Die Vielhundertjährigen, the audience is contacted by the only contemporary witnesses of a long-gone division between the biological and the digital. These people, several hundred years old, are now inhabitants of a post-digital world. Based on fantasies and wishes for the world, the ensemble, ranging in age from 65 to 87, create their own science fiction narrative.

Pas de Q enters the classical ballet world to turn choreographic forms and traditions upside down and reinvent them. A queer ensemble of male and non-binary dancers
pushes movement, dance and queer aesthetics to the extreme. In a utopian science fiction world, the team fuses drag art and pointe dance into a labyrinth of imaginative perversions, beyond morality and shame.

In the scenic adaptation of his own text, the Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf deals with loss from a queer perspective: the loss of family, home and relationships, but also that of meaning and language. The audience enters a place where fragments overlap. Two figures move through scenes whose internal coherence continues to unravel through memories, anecdotes, and associative references.

Hey, why do you look so tired? "Urgency culture" expects us to be connected and responsive constantly. There is little to no time left to imagine the world otherwise. Tanztage Berlin – a yearly festival highlighting the work of the city's emerging dance makers – is back to diagnose the present and predict the future. Its 32nd edition investigates our daily overstimulation and chronic fatigue by reflecting on how we move to the rhythm of today's high-speed, social media-driven reality and its challenges.

DUE TO ILLNESS CLAUDIA TOMASI WILL PERFORM INSTEAD OF Lea Moro.

The Solo for Lea is a meeting between Isabelle Schad and Lea Moro. In continuation of Schads choreographic practice around relationships between body, movement, image and (re)presentation, the work attempts to draw a very personal portrait of Lea Moro, dealing with the specificities of her body, its rhythms, its contours, colours and energies. Dissected in parts and reorganised anew, the body is regarded as pure materiality, as a medium of energetic potential and transformation.
The new work unfolds itself in the borderline between visual arts and dance, between performance and installation, between sensual experience and abstraction and is playing with form-aspects of cubism and Picasso's drawings in one dash.
Together Schad and Moro engage in constellations of forming and dis-figuring, in which the body itself becomes the stage: the space, place and matter that is subject of observation.

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. As part of Deutscher Tanzpreis 2019, Schad received an honor for outstanding artistic developments in contemporary dance. isabelle-schad.net
