JANUARY 07 to ∞

Due to the current pandemic situation, the 30th edition of the Tanztage Berlin will start as an online program from January 7 to 16. All planned live performances will then be made up for in spring 2021.
The film showdown AV by choreographer Judith Förster and filmmaker Stella Horta will kick off the festival on January 7. Clay AD will present the first digital premiere of the festival on January 15 with the performance Indication of Spring at the End of Time. We also invite you to an online Zukunftswerkstatt – a series of discussions about work culture and mental health, organized in cooperation with the ZTB (Zeitgenössischer Tanz Berlin) association. Pedro Marum will also curate an online format focusing on new artistic practices of care in club culture. In addition to this, the festival presents the first three episodes of its podcast, which was prepared in collaboration with the queer-feminist rave collective LECKEN.

          Notice

          Unfortunately, the shows have to be cancelled. Already purchased tickets will be refunded automatically. Stay tuned for a film version in spring 2021.

          Forward, backward, cut, all back, repeat: two figures move in front of a wall. Their bodies and their relationship to each other are constantly interrupted and so are the narratives that unfold and disappear again. Concentrating on a complex composition and a detailed execution of movement, choreographer Sheena McGrandles uncovers the absurdity and artificiality of the everyday gesture. With a soundtrack created from various field recordings ranging from refrigerator to demo, Figured sticks persistently to the detail and insists on putting his - and our - attention to it, over and over again.

Her current group of works explores radical temporality as a means of detailed exploration and exaggeration of movement. Her works create hyper-real, multi-narrative and humorous moving landscapes. Sheena presents her works nationally and internationally, including London (The Place), Amsterdam (something raw), Berlin (Sophiensæle), Mexico City (Museo Universitario Del Chopo), Los Angeles (PSSST).
