The children Charlotte and Felix emerge from the sea and play as their dead parents on the beach. It's a ritual the two have been practicing for years. In memory of their parents' wild exuberance, they put sunscreen on their backs and tickle each other until they can hardly breathe. For brief moments,all sadness falls away from them. Again and again, however, the different needs of the two ten- and eleven-year-old siblings break into the game.

Raum 213
Suitable for english speakers <br> Weitere Vorstellungen am 29.+30.01.2015

DRAGANA BULUT and the Julius-Hans-Spiegel-Zentrum will celebrate the legendary Serbian choreographer and dancer Kokana Šanić Koka’s anniversary. With a background in folk dance, cabaret and magic, she has developed a performative practice that has been acclaimed and deeply appreciated in her local context and has strongly influenced a number of young Balkan choreographers. She has performed with Meg Stuart, Tino Sehgal, Sent M’Ahesa, Ivo Dimchev, among others, and together with writer Ana Vujanović, she ran a small travelling shop selling Balkan theoretical and artistic souvenirs. This will be the first occasion to gain insight into her seminal work up-close in Berlin.

The Julius-Hans-Spiegel-Zentrum is a special guest of the Tanztage Berlin. As a mobile research space, the Julius-Hans-Spiegel-Zentrum examines the interweaving of different dance cultures since the modern period. This center, along with its archives, has been a guest of the Sophiensæle since November and is departing Berlin with a thematic weekend bash on january 29th till 31st. Beginning with the archive box 942n, a historical collection of dance photographs, various artists in residence have been creating new pieces since November. The pieces by Florentina Holzinger/Vincent Riebeek and Nelisiwe Xaba were created during the Spiegel-Zentrums sojourn in Freiburg and will be presented in Berlin for the first time.
