Hochzeitssaal | 15/10 €

Back to the future: In Die Vielhundertjährigen, the audience is contacted by the only contemporary witnesses of a long-gone division between the biological and the digital. These people, several hundred years old, are now inhabitants of a post-digital world. Based on fantasies and wishes for the world, the ensemble, ranging in age from 65 to 87, create their own science fiction narrative.

Festsaal | 15/10 €

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.

Hochzeitssaal | 15/10 €

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.

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.

Festsaal

Lea Moro performs the big gesture of musicals with simple abstraction. She embarks on an extravagant path alone and shares her vulnerability with the audience. She moves through the empty stage space on roller skates and so develops a powerful yet fragile language of singing and movement.

The standard ways of directing musicals, such as the use of emotionality, stage effects, virtuoso numbers and catchy music are all transferred to a single solo piece. Set to the sound of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons (1725), Lea Moro sings her way through her musical. Again, as in her previous pieces Le Sacre du Printemps, a ballet for a single body and (b)reaching stillness, she uses classical music.

Without ever naming it, The End of the Alphabet deals with the moments when familiar states come to an end. These situations and the feelings linked with them are the stuff of Moro’s solo-musical. We are denied a clear narrative structure, an atmosphere that we can easily grasp and a soothing happy ending. The End of the Alphabet creates a dark, yet humourous space for ambivalent associations, confused impressions and melodramatic scenarios.
