Festsaal | 15/10 €

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.

Tanztage Berlin 2023
© Jan Grygoriew

JANUAR 05 – 21

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.

Who am I? Where do I come from? What do I look like? What can I do? What am I interested in? What do I love? What’s special about me? How do I move? I often have trouble feeling comfortable with myself. I’m not really sure who I am, how I want to be and how others perceive me. I am quickly influenced by my friends, my idols or my family. Sometimes I realize what I have in common with others, and sometimes I see how different I am.

Between that what shapes us and that what makes us unique and that which connects us to other people, we find our identities. Through language but most of all our gestures, movements and in dance we are in constant exchange with our surroundings: in Außer mir we discover through dance the uniqueness and commonality in each one of us.
