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.

          Suitable for English Speakers

          Wet, fluid glitchy – with two hundred liters of fake slime and three female bodies Slime Dynamics explores the space between form and shapelessness, talking and leaking, desire and disgust, intimacy and alienation. How do we feel and think in an unstable, flowing world? A world in which the borders between human and non-human bodies are blurry, between the known and unknown? Siegmar Zacharias and her team lead us into an unspeakable cosmos made of fleshy geometries and liquified landscapes.
