June 03 04 | 19.00
Festsaal | 15/10 €

The interdisciplinary project Terrestrial Transit deals with the activist practice of artistic intervention, which is gaining importance again in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe, in view of the strengthening of right-wing authoritarian regimes. The work of the dance company CRANKY BODIES a/company, founded in August 2020 by Peter Pleyer and Michiel Keuper, refers in particular to political forms of protest in the tradition of Polish and Hungarian dance and performance art before the fall of the Wall.

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:

For 44 years, the mining company Wismut extracted uranium from the Ore Mountains of Saxony for use in the Soviet atomic project. Today, the mines are closed, but the history radiates through the landscape and bodies. In this docu-dance, a movement choir invites the audience into the hollowed-out landscapes to see what new forms of collective, ideology, landscape and life can exist here.

feat DJ Nara and DJ Mars Dietz aka Sapphic Faggot (experimental music, bass, dance, kuduro, reggaeton, trap, hip hop, brazilian baile funk)

JULE FLIERL (Berlin) wants to tell the story of sound dance. In STÖRLAUT (2018), she embraces the vocal dances of Valeska Gert, mobilizes them as forms that extraterrestrial proclamation exercises when other types of speech fail; STÖRLAUT brought her the title Hoffnungsträgerin 2018 from "Tanz" magazine.

MARS DIETZ (New York/Berlin) deals with landscape use and human geography. Her focus is on resource extraction. Her work includes sound installations such as freedom from speech and she is a DJ member of "Bodysnatch".
