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.

          language no problem

          Two performers disrupt the dualism of dominance and submission, confronting their viewers with intimacy and their own responsibility as an audience. Based on the pleasure principle and inspired by animal sounds, they develop their own hybrid body language and perception, imagining non-human relationships. Between tender touches and dark joyous satisfactions the performers discover another logic of solitude and companionship.

          JOSEFINE MÜHLE studied theatre studies in Leipzig as well as dance, context and choreography at the HZT in Berlin. SUVI KEMPPAINEN studied dance at North Karelia College Outokumpu in Finland and continued her studies at HZT Berlin.
