JANUARY 07 to ∞

Due to the current pandemic situation, the 30th edition of the Tanztage Berlin will start as an online program from January 7 to 16. All planned live performances will then be made up for in spring 2021.
The film showdown AV by choreographer Judith Förster and filmmaker Stella Horta will kick off the festival on January 7. Clay AD will present the first digital premiere of the festival on January 15 with the performance Indication of Spring at the End of Time. We also invite you to an online Zukunftswerkstatt – a series of discussions about work culture and mental health, organized in cooperation with the ZTB (Zeitgenössischer Tanz Berlin) association. Pedro Marum will also curate an online format focusing on new artistic practices of care in club culture. In addition to this, the festival presents the first three episodes of its podcast, which was prepared in collaboration with the queer-feminist rave collective LECKEN.

          Auf Deutsch - in German

          Welcome to the expedition through the territory of the “Museum of the Future” section in Berlin. The city has a new wall and is divided into a “Priority Area” and “Less Priority Area”. A group of young outsiders navigates you through these zones.

          An urban audio drama tour to guide you through the courtyards, parking garages and construction sites in a parallel reality: on the search for a future city, young performers between 15-27 years old along with the audience, take over the urban city space between Mitte and Wedding.
