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.

TO ALL emerging DANCE ARTISTS BASED IN BERLIN

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: https://tanztage-berlin.sophiensaele.com.

Cassandra knows the future but no one believes her. In the first part of Cassandra Has Turned, three female performers predicted a whole array of possible futures, alternative pasts, larger and smaller catastrophes. Now they are setting their prophecies to sound in order to seep into our ears. What is even implausible, a truth or a lie? In a time of alternative facts isn’t every narrative justified as long as the rhetoric and performance fit?
