In the piece, which is both music theatre and dance performance, the audience itself becomes part of a living sound installation. Electronic sounds emanate from their own mobile phone loudspeakers, which change depending on the distance to the performers and merge into a single collective body of sound.

Inspired by the historical phenomenon of dance frenzy - the solo dance mixes ecstatic eruptions with pounding beats and is party, spoken word concert and expression of physical madness to exhaustion all in one.

Every new year, the Tanztage Berlin is not only the city's very first festival, it has also established itself nationally and internationally as an important platform for emerging dance artists since its founding in 1996. The next edition of Tanztage Berlin will once again take place under the artistic direction of Mateusz Szymanówka. The festival is currently planned for 5-21 January 2023 - however, the form as well as the exact date will depend on the constant reassessment of the pandemic. The festival offers emerging dance artists based in Berlin a framework for their new productions and revivals. The programme of the last two editions can be found at:

Centre Francais de Berlin
in English

Attendance is only possible after registration. An artist talk will follow the performance at 20.30. 

As part of the Sophiensæle residency program New Techniques, we invite you to Centre français de Berlin (CFB) for a fourth showing: On May 13, Juan Pablo Cámara and his team will give insight into their artistic research on psychoanalysis, corporeality and identity construction. The evening will be followed by a discussion with the artist and Sophiensæle dance dramaturge Mateusz Szymanówka.

During his residency, Juan Pablo Cámara, together with Liina Magnea, researched embodiments that deal with forms of narcissism and its hidden fragility. In exchange with his collaborators Andrey Bogush (objects), Mauro Guz Bejar (sound), Emilio Cordero Checa (light), Juliane König (costume), Zander Porter (video) and the outside eyes Ewa Dziarnowska, Maciek Sado, Maja Zimmerman, Juan Felipe Amaya Gonzalez and Karol Tyminski, Cámara investigates Murga (an urban dance from Argentina) and musical singing, exploring the possibility of vulnerable connections with an external gaze.

With the residency program NEW TECHNIQUES, Sophiensæle aims to support dance creators who have not yet benefited from structural support. Since 2020, one choreographer with an artistic team has participated in the residency for one month per semester. In November/December 2020 Rodrigo Garcia Alves and Liz Rosenfeld explored questions of dying and queer care, in March 2021 tiran dealt with the connection between race, gender and melancholy, in November 2021 Angela Alves gave insights into her artistic research on desire and embodiment. Sophiensæle is one of nine Berlin production houses participating in the pilot project Residency Support for Dance of the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.

JUAN PABLO CÁMARA is a Berlin-based choreographer and performer from Argentina who graduated from the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam in 2017. His artistic practice moves between his own works, collaborations with other artists and working as a performer in different projects. Based on his interest in and experience with psychoanalysis, his choreographic research deals with phenomena such as artificiality, identity construction and dis{}embodiment in order to reflect on the precariousness of subjectivity in today's world. As a performer he has collaborated with choreographers such as Michele Rizzo, Jefta van Dinther, Adam Linder and Kat Válastur.

The residency program NEW TECHNIQUES is funded by the Senate Department for Culture and Europe as part of the pilot project Residenzförderung Tanz.
