JANUARY 07 to ∞

Due to the current pandemic situation, the 30th edition of the Tanztage Berlin will start as an online program from January 7 to 16. All planned live performances will then be made up for in spring 2021.
The film showdown AV by choreographer Judith Förster and filmmaker Stella Horta will kick off the festival on January 7. Clay AD will present the first digital premiere of the festival on January 15 with the performance Indication of Spring at the End of Time. We also invite you to an online Zukunftswerkstatt – a series of discussions about work culture and mental health, organized in cooperation with the ZTB (Zeitgenössischer Tanz Berlin) association. Pedro Marum will also curate an online format focusing on new artistic practices of care in club culture. In addition to this, the festival presents the first three episodes of its podcast, which was prepared in collaboration with the queer-feminist rave collective LECKEN.

          Suitable for English Speakers

          Mab Cardoso

          Now***For Real

          The body as a sound device, sound as a movement generator: as a choreographer, performer and composer Mab Cardoso interweaves performance art, electronic music beats, classical ballet and movement.


          Cécile Bally

          The Sleep of Reason

          Bally’s post-dramatic magic show opens the coffin of a modern vampire and examines the preconceptions and clichés of this figure. Can the stage maintain its magical potential when all tricks have been laid out in the open?


          feedback sessions after the show

          Far removed from the classic discussion round, the festival invites the public to come exchange their ideas using interactive and participative formats in order to really grasp the essence of the performances.
