KRISTINA + KAROLINA DREIT, ANNA TRZPIS-MCLEAN FASHIONSHOW: WORKING CLASS DAUGHTERS
May 26 | 15.00
May 27 28 29 30
Online-Installation
Online | Eintritt frei

As part of PAF Introducing ..., the installation in the Sophiensæle courtyard 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 and 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

          Outdoor Walk

          2020 October 19 20
          Start: Im Hof der Sophiensæle

          German, English or Korean

          The walks take place as one-to-one encounters between artist and spectator. If the minimum distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained, a mouth-nose cover must be worn.

          Timeslots: 14.30 | 15.30 | 17.00 | 18.00
          Duration: approx. 30 minutes

          IN COMPANY
          Starting from the historical building of the former craftsman's association in which the Sophiensaele are located, tour guide and hostess Olivia Hyunsin Kim takes their one-person-audience on a performative journey: In a relaxed setting, she evokes characters and scenes from an alternative past that - multifaceted as it is - might just as well have happened.

          In times of a pandemic, joint walks are very high in popularity. For weeks in spring, they were the only way to experience the public together. At the same time, distance and fresh air keep the risk of infection as low as possible. And yet every encounter also involves risks. It can create understanding, warmth and intimacy, but sometimes also incomprehension and conflict. Encounters can lead to both closeness and distance.

          During the festival, we invite artists and audiences to encounter each other on 1:1 walks, thus offering all those who are not yet drawn back to the theatre spaces with the opportunity for an immediate exchange. What drives us? In times of physical distancing, the dialogue with an unknown opens new perspectives on our relationships.

          ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION
          The walk takes about 30 minutes and includes several sitting breaks. The route is 350 meters long. The road is paved and uneven in some places and at one point you walk on a lawn for a short while. You will pass a gate that is about 1 meter wide. It is possible to choose between German, English or Korean spoken language. If the minimum distance of 1.5 meters cannot be kept, a face mask is obligatory. If you have any questions or require further information, please contact Gina Jeske at jeske@sophiensaele.com or 030 27 89 00 35.

          OLIVIA HYUNSIN KIM graduated with distinction from the Institut für Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft Gießen and the HfMDK Frankfurt with a master's degree in choreography and performance. As ddanddarakim she collaborates with various artists. Her MeMe series she came, she saw, she said:meme (part 1), MeMe - I see. Ah! (Part 2) and Miss Yellow and Me - I wanna be a musical (Part 3) toured internationally and dealt with exoticism in relation to non-white, "other" bodies. At Sophiensæle she showed most recently her performance Yellow Banana (2019). She has received scholarships from the DAAD, the Berlin Senate, the Rebecca Skelton Fund, Erasmus and the Seoul National University.
