Online | 10/7 EURO

In Familiodrom, Interrobang gives birth to a child together with the audience. Immediately the freshly baked parents' collective is stuck in the ideological swamp of cloth diapers, ready-to-eat porridge, sleep training, shame and guilt.

Tanztage Berlin 2021


JANUAR 07 bis ∞

Since hard times require furious dancing, the 30th edition of Tanztage Berlin under the new curation of Mateusz Szymanówka investigates dance’s anti-authoritarian tradition. From January 7th onwards, in the dystopian “now” after the afterparty, the festival presents twelve performances by emerging choreographers which examine the body in revolt - in its fragility, mortality and ability to transform itself and the others.

          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.
