The way we perceive our reality is shaped by the language of our senses. But what happens when this fine interplay is disturbed? A search for traces of perception and experience.

History has failed us, but... deals with physical forms of protest and searches for a solidary togetherness while taking into account different bodies. Which narratives and images of resistance are remembered - and how are they told?

For a long time now, collective mourning and its rituals have been disappearing from public space. Golden Gate questions our normative perceptions of loss and mourning. What is queer grief and in what way can it become a collective movement of melancholy and resistance?

Tanztage Berlin 2022

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.

Tanz im August 2018 Nora Chipaumire Portrait of myself as my father

What is the basis of Black masculinity? Is it the walk, is it posture, is it the time one takes? In portrait of myself as my father Nora Chipaumire grapples with the father figure, which becomes an opportunity to question colonial and post-colonial strategies. For Chipaumire, born in Zimbabwe, living in Brooklyn, the biography of her father becomes the starting point for a performance mix of dance, pop culture, acrobatics and discourse that passionately throws racist stereotypes and violence into the ring along with role models and utopias.

AUGUST 16 | Meet the Artist Nora Chipaumire | Talk after the performance


Nora Chipaumire was born in Mutare, Zimbabwe, and lives in New York. Since beginning her work in 1998 she has both challenged and embraced stereotypes of Africa and the Black body, art and aesthetics. Her new trilogy PUNK 100%POP *NIGGA is a live-performance album, which was first performed in October 2017 at the Kitchen, New York. Since 2012 she has been working on the long-term project Nhaka, a technology, praxis and process of her artistic work. In this context she published a digital book based on researches with Anna Morris’s tumbuka dance company and Shona masters in Harare. Chipaumire is a Guggenheim Fellow in 2018.
