Hochzeitssaal | 15/10 €

Back to the future: In Die Vielhundertjährigen, the audience is contacted by the only contemporary witnesses of a long-gone division between the biological and the digital. These people, several hundred years old, are now inhabitants of a post-digital world. Based on fantasies and wishes for the world, the ensemble, ranging in age from 65 to 87, create their own science fiction narrative.

Pas de Q enters the classical ballet world to turn choreographic forms and traditions upside down and reinvent them. A queer ensemble of male and non-binary dancers
pushes movement, dance and queer aesthetics to the extreme. In a utopian science fiction world, the team fuses drag art and pointe dance into a labyrinth of imaginative perversions, beyond morality and shame.

In the scenic adaptation of his own text, the Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf deals with loss from a queer perspective: the loss of family, home and relationships, but also that of meaning and language. The audience enters a place where fragments overlap. Two figures move through scenes whose internal coherence continues to unravel through memories, anecdotes, and associative references.

© Jan Grygoriew

Hey, why do you look so tired? "Urgency culture" expects us to be connected and responsive constantly. There is little to no time left to imagine the world otherwise. Tanztage Berlin – a yearly festival highlighting the work of the city's emerging dance makers – is back to diagnose the present and predict the future. Its 32nd edition investigates our daily overstimulation and chronic fatigue by reflecting on how we move to the rhythm of today's high-speed, social media-driven reality and its challenges.

In English

The boot tour will start around Treptower Park, precise location will be communicated. The show will be in English until July 10. From the 10th july other languages will be added, such as German, Turkish, French. You will find updates here.

Throughout the summer, the team around Aimé C. Songe alias Clément Layes invites you to a personal encounter on a rowing boat just in time for sunset. Together with different artists, participants embark on a dream-like journey to question the concept of an active and productive life and take time to decelerate.

Aimé C. Songe is an artistic persona of Clément Layes who takes the time to grieve and find new ways to come together with the audience and the world outdoors and in nature.

The performance lasts about one hour and is happening at sunset time on a rowing boat on the water. The boat is 5 meter by 1m40. It is a classic rowing boat. Life vests are available. A performer will welcome you and be your host. The performance is scripted and you will receive a listening device to follow the performance while your host navigates the boat. It is a quiet and relaxed performance. There is only for you to look and listen. During the performance you will be invited to sit or lay down in the boat, sometimes with closed eyes. It is up to you.
