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

The SHOWS ON THE 13TH AND 14TH WILL be filmed for documentation-, press- and marketing-related purposes.

Dance as political tool: Rooted in friendship and alliance, One hundred more is the first collaborative work of Laurie Young and Justine A. Chambers. As women of colour and mothers, the two dancers question how power structures have inscribed themselves into their bodies - and what movement is possible within these forms. Working with opacity, they channel iconic and personal gestures of political resistance. Instead of the gestures as a whole they place the micro-movements leading up to them in the center of their dance practice. This illegibility activates the forms themselves as a resistance.

Laurie Young is a choreographer and dancer whose work focuses on the embodiment of unauthorized histories and their representation and how relationships are choreographed between human and other than human beings in the theater, museum and city. Laurie Young has been busy with interdisciplinary projects between arts and science and is a fellow of Volkswagen Foundations Arts and Science and Motion. Her works have been presented in Sophiensæle since 2011.

JUSTINE A. CHAMBERS movement based practice considers how choreography can be an empathic practice rooted in collaborative creation, close observation, and the body as a site of a cumulative embodied archive. Privileging what is felt over what is seen, she works with dances that are already there – the social choreographies present in the everyday. Her choreographic projects have been shared in galleries and theatres in Canada and abroad. She is Max Tyler-Hite's mother.
