Festsaal | 15/10 €

The interdisciplinary project Terrestrial Transit deals with the activist practice of artistic intervention, which is gaining importance again in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe, in view of the strengthening of right-wing authoritarian regimes. The work of the dance company Cranky Bodies a/company, founded in August 2020 by Peter Pleyer and Michiel Keuper, refers in particular to political forms of protest in the tradition of Polish and Hungarian dance and performance art before the fall of the Wall.

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.

Who's Ajima? Exhibited on a platform on eye level, the figure takes us on a performative rollercoaster ride between quiet moments and visual fireworks, partly funny, partly hyper, from yoga to disco, from Beethoven to Queer Electro Rave, with exuberant light effects and no shyness for pathos. In crazy episodes Ajima questions expectations and attributions: What and who do we want to see on stage? A solo piece that stands up for an open community.
