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.

FEBRUARY 10 – 24
FEBRUARY 10 | 19.00 PM

This revival of TONIGHT takes place online. Because time has a very different quality on screen than on stage, and because the logic of video is different to the logic of theater, Melanie Jame Wolf has reimagined this version of TONIGHT as a film. In this sense, it is a second edition of the work. Offering a fresh take to both those who are familiar with TONIGHT, and those new to the work and the artist.

          Late Night Show

          2020 March 20 | 20.00

          In German

          The women on the edge of comedy are embarking on their ninth year and yet, are new and fresh every time. Stern discovers funny, talented people where actually are none. She herself is always modestly at the center of attention and at every step of the way, leads the evening with skillful incompetence – a nona fide expert in her field! Ladies are offered as canapés and as the main ‘curse,’ so to speak: raw, completely untreated or comically prepared to superstar standards. The motto in March: ALWAYS ME!

          VANESSA STERN, actress, founder of Krisenzentrum für weibliche Komik, is working since 2011 continuously within the framework of her project Heulen kann jede - weibliche Komik in der Krise at Sophiensæle. In April 2018 her HKF-funded Performance Die Umschülerinnen oder Die Komödie der unbegabten Kinder premiered. She regularly produces episodes of her large comedy laboratory show La Dernière Crise - Frauen am Rande der Komik in the Festsaal at Sophiensæle. heulenkannjede.de
