In Living Room Clémentine M. Songe (aka Clément Layes) explores the dynamics of the living room, that place where we surround ourself with things that feel familiar, intimate, recognizable, safe. Transforming this room into a ‘living room’, a room that makes its own choices. In collaboration with an architect, a light designer and a visual artist, Clémentine M. Songe bare the many interrelations that appear between our lives and this place, showing how much we take our habitual environment for granted, relying on it in order to feel ‘at home’ in the world.

Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz
© Jan Grygoriew

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.

A choreographic labyrinth: ONON looks at the things and digital systems that organize our everyday lives.

Like the systems that surround us, the people who operate them are always in action. ON ON instead of OFF. In a choreography, human and non-human elements combine to form a multi-rhythmic machine. Mobile walls form a labyrinth. Following their own rhythm, the elements move across the stage as if drawn by magic. The performers follow the mechanical choreography of this inorganic body - but not without testing their limits and possibilities of resistance. Can the system be subverted from within?

CLÉMENT LAYES lives and works as a choreographer and performer in Berlin since 2008. At the interface of choreography, visual arts and philosophy, his works emerge from observations of the everyday life. His performances are shown internationally. Recently: Der grüne Stuhl (2012), Things that surround us (2012), Dreamed Apparatus (2014), Title (2015), The Eternal Return (2017) and ONON (2019).

The company PUBLIC IN PRIVATE, founded by Clément Layes and Jasna Vinovrski in Berlin in 2008, investigates, reflects and questions social, political and cultural structures in its artistic works with the aim of expanding the boundaries and understanding of dance as an art form in a collaborative approach and reflecting on its media conditions.
