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.

JANUAR 05 – 21

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.

Film and Talk
2022 November 27 | 19.00
Kantine
In German with English subtitles

Within the framework of Caroline Creutzburg + René Alejandro Huari Mateus's Die Vielhunderjährigen

It is compulsory to wear an FFP2 mask. Exceptions are made for visitors who are unable to wear an FFP2 mask for health/physical reasons and for visitors who communicate in sign language.

Robotron – A Tech Opera is the first soap opera set in the computer industry of the GDR and deals with computer development in a planned economy and everyday life in East Germany. VEB Kombinat Robotron was the largest computer manufacturer in the former GDR and one of the most important producers of information technology in socialist Eastern Europe. Inspired by her own family history, Buttendorf deals with the political, material and social conditions of working, living and loving together in the people-owned company Robotron. The artist assumes all roles and functions in the film: direction, camera, script, make-up, costume, sound design, lighting and all acting roles. Collective binge watching of all episodes of the web series, followed by an artist talk.

Nadja Buttendorf questions contemporary codes and norms of gender construction, as well as challenging the mechanisms of value creation that affect the human body in our digital society. Her work illustrates that even our understanding of technology is closely tied to systems of patriarchal power relations. Rejecting these notions, her interactive works and video projects are designed for interaction; constructing new and far more multilayered narratives in which women regain their visibility as an integral part of the history of technology. The works and workshops of Nadja Buttendorf were shown at the HKW Berlin, Hartware MedienKunstVerein Dortmund, Kunsthalle Bremen, La Gaîté Lyrique Paris, MU Eindhoven, NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, Halle 14 - Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst Leipzig, D21 Leipzig, Musem der bildenden Künste Leipzig, neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst Berlin and the panke.gallery Berlin.
