Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz

JANUARY 06-22

In tandem with emerging dance artists connected to our city, Tanztage Berlin 2022 continues to examine what keeps us together and tears us apart. After 2021 the festival took place exclusively online, its 31st edition returns as an extended offline and online program. Alongside the last year’s selection of performances, it includes new creations and discourse formats on power, protest, and empowerment. The work presented during Tanztage Berlin 2022 critically navigates the present by reimagining past and future encounters on the dance floor. While dealing with acute problems like power relations, surveillance, disembodiment, or climate change, it tunes into the social body, creating much-needed moments of awareness, connectedness, and self-determination. Unlike the 21st-century billionaire strategy of abandoning earth in a rocket ship or escaping into a parallel virtual universe, the festival chooses instead to stay with the trouble: to celebrate dancing together through the crisis and against despair.

Margrét Sara Guðjónsdóttir + Angela Schubot In the Blind Spot

Dance
2016 April 21 22 | 19.30
Kantine
Suitable for English Speakers

In the Blind Spot takes the notion of letting go as it´s starting point and leads the body to the edge of collapse and utter surrendering. It strives to transform the supposed weakness of the spent body into something positive and celebrate it as the refusal of the achievement imperative, the fullness of its fragility revealing the unseen location of the non-resistant resistance. In the Blind Spot expounds a very physical movement language, extracting the usual limits of identity and (self) assertion by its very softness. With limitless non-aggression it reveals and provokes simultaneously.

The performance In the Blind Spot belongs to the Blind Spotting Performance Series launched in 2014. It is simultaneously the first part of  solo trilogy Körper ohne Macht (Powerless Bodies). Gudjonsdottir and Schubot radically put the singular body as the centrepiece. As if under a magnifying glass, hidden insides are brought to light.
