Pas de Q enters the classical ballet world to turn choreographic forms and traditions upside down and reinvent them. A queer ensemble of male and non-binary dancers
pushes movement, dance and queer aesthetics to the extreme. In a utopian science fiction world, the team fuses drag art and pointe dance into a labyrinth of imaginative perversions, beyond morality and shame.

In the scenic adaptation of his own text, the Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf deals with loss from a queer perspective: the loss of family, home and relationships, but also that of meaning and language. The audience enters a place where fragments overlap. Two figures move through scenes whose internal coherence continues to unravel through memories, anecdotes, and associative references.

JANUAR 05 – 21

Hey, why do you look so tired? "Urgency culture" expects us to be connected and responsive constantly. There is little to no time left to imagine the world otherwise. Tanztage Berlin – a yearly festival highlighting the work of the city's emerging dance makers – is back to diagnose the present and predict the future. Its 32nd edition investigates our daily overstimulation and chronic fatigue by reflecting on how we move to the rhythm of today's high-speed, social media-driven reality and its challenges.

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.
