FASHIONSHOW: WORKING CLASS DAUGHTERS
Fashionshow Working Class Daughters_Foto neu_c_Kristina Dreit_HP
May 26 | 15.00
May 27 28 29 30
Eintritt frei

As part of PAF Introducing ..., the online-installation negotiates issues of class, gender and migration. In a subtle way it plays with conventions of fashion shows and refers to a current phenomenon in which so-called "workwear" finds its way into high fashion contexts. What's classy if you're rich, but trashy if you're poor?

JANUARY 07 to ∞

Dear Audience, dear Friends of Tanztage Berlin,

due to the ongoing uncertain planning situation, after three attempts of postponing the festival since January 2021, we have to inform you with a heavy heart that the event won’t take place this year. The twelve performances we were supposed to present received an invitation to participate in its next edition in January 2022. The artists received their production/revival grants, cancellation fees, and rehearsal space and dramaturgical support throughout the season. The works are finished and ready to be presented live. On July 1st, we are going to publish an open call for Tanztage Berlin 2022. We would like to thank the artists and our audience for their patience and understanding. We were very happy about the interest in our online kickoff of the Tanztage in January – you can still find the podcasts of the online kickoff on our website

Berlin has long been built on quagmire. Therefore, it is not surprising that some structures of today's Berlin have their blueprints in the baroque era - the allegedly grand old times, whose facades are being restored in a way that creates dramatic effects. matthaei & konsorten devote themselves to the humid, sweltering delirium of that epoch. On an expedition into the mucky city, they invite their audience to the remote, exaggerated, hardly beautiful sides of Berlin: How about dancing a sarabande on the sewage fields below the border zone? Or to crack the Mäusebunker with rhetorical rams? In September, matthaei & konsorten launch their new work Die Sumpfgeborene (The Swamp-Born) with wondrous actions in the city, before finally premiering in November. There the shameless affects and magnificent stagings of social abysses will be crossed with the unstoppable narrative apparatus of the telenovela.

Director JÖRG LUKAS MATTHAEI specializes in interventions in urban landscapes. Based on documentary research on various topics, his productions create dense thematic spaces that can be experienced sensually. For his excursions into different worlds of imagination, Matthaei is always on the lookout for wayward ways of seeing and living that inspire resistance in our smoothed-out world and weaves these into his works in the form of interviews and short lectures. Under the label MATTHAEI & KONSORTEN Jörg Lukas Matthaei works together with artists from different disciplines. Since 2000, almost 50 works of various orientations have been created: From productions for the stage, installations and discourse productions to the development of new formats for urban landscapes, which have been a focus of the work for several years. Stagings by matthaei & konsorten can be encountered in all places that also occur in the lives of their actors or visitors. Recent works include COOP3000 eine neosolidarische concerngründung (Urban Arts Ruhr), BAILE BASSENA (Vienna Festival), URBAN MAGIC (Bangalore) and with the Sophiensæle most recently Im Apparat der Kriege (2014 Sophiensæle + radio version for rbb and others) and Verschwörung der Idioten. Between 2015 and 2016 they regularly presented the Idiotensalon at the Sophiensæle. matthaei-und-konsorten.de
