Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz
© Jan Grygoriew


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.

Nichts geht mehr! - Performances zum Spielen Quast + Knoblich Fortune Teller

Lichthelden Steffen Kauffmann
2018 May 09 10 | 21.00
2018 May 11 12 | 19.00
Mai 09 11 12 - Auf Deutsch - in German | Mai 10 - THE DADDY ISSUE | Suitable for English Speakers

The grand chocolate oracle meets the art of reading coffee grinds: equipped with a chocolate fountain, projector and clarivoyant talents, tried and tested by a Swedish medium, Quast + Knoblich interpret patterns in the audience’s empty coffee cups. While chitchatting the duo finds substance in the most banal and vice versa. However, in their infatuating game with illusions and the desire to believe, it’s rather the group search for meaning and stories than solutions which become the goal!
