May 27 28 29 30
Online-Installation
Online | Eintritt frei

As part of PAF Introducing ..., the online-installation negotiates issues of class, gender and migration. In a subtle way it plays with conventions of fashion shows and refers to a current phenomenon in which so-called "workwear" finds its way into high fashion contexts. What's classy if you're rich, but trashy if you're poor?

JANUARY 07 to ∞

Dear Audience, dear Friends of Tanztage Berlin,

due to the ongoing uncertain planning situation, after three attempts of postponing the festival since January 2021, we have to inform you with a heavy heart that the event won’t take place this year. The twelve performances we were supposed to present received an invitation to participate in its next edition in January 2022. The artists received their production/revival grants, cancellation fees, and rehearsal space and dramaturgical support throughout the season. The works are finished and ready to be presented live. On July 1st, we are going to publish an open call for Tanztage Berlin 2022. We would like to thank the artists and our audience for their patience and understanding. We were very happy about the interest in our online kickoff of the Tanztage in January – you can still find the podcasts of the online kickoff on our website

          Kantine

          Auf Deutsch - in German

          The end is near: Climate change, hyperinflation, sun flare or class war … official media and conspiracy theorists all agree: Something will happen. Soon. What to do? Most of us trust that somehow everything will just go on. But not the preppers, a rapidly growing movement of mostly white, heterosexual, affluent Americans, who expect very concrete catastrophes and get ready for them: They build nuclear fallout shelters, make tomato preserves, stockpile machine guns and armor their SUVs. To watch them on Youtube, trying to preserve their authoritarian nuclear families into a post-apocalyptic future is as bizarre as it is unsettling.

          Are there alternatives? Burmester & Feigl ask in their new performance series: How do we want to live after disaster strikes (if we survive)? Will all those models of fair, egalitarian, collaborative  living together that we experimented with for the last 20 years be worth anything, or are they merely a luxury capitalism grants us to keep us quiet? In the beginning of each performance of TWOTWAWKI the wheel of misfortune turns and determines the crisis Burmester & Feigl will have to deal with that night. With their tried and tested mix of performance art and critique they take their audience on a journey into a different end time. From sounds and texts he finds live on stage and on the Internet, Hamburg based musician Mark Boombastik generates an appropriately apocalyptic soundtrack for the catastrophe.
