In Familiodrom, Interrobang gives birth to a child together with the online audience. Immediately the freshly baked parents' collective is stuck in the ideological swamp of cloth diapers, ready-to-eat porridge, sleep training, shame and guilt.

Tanztage Berlin 2021

SOP_HP_TATA21_1200x900

JANUAR 07 bis ∞

Since hard times require furious dancing, the 30th edition of Tanztage Berlin under the new curation of Mateusz Szymanówka investigates dance’s anti-authoritarian tradition. From January 7th onwards, in the dystopian “now” after the afterparty, the festival presents twelve performances by emerging choreographers which examine the body in revolt - in its fragility, mortality and ability to transform itself and the others.

          In German

          Four train passengers - are they people, are they animals? - meet in a sleeping car compartment. They get to know each other, they settle in, they share their delicacies. Their destination, they realize, is the same: Muriel, Eddie, Igor and Siggi are hibernators. They travel to the north, to Svalbard, to a place where it is not yet so hot, where you can still sleep despite climate change; if possible, for a whole winter. But the utopia of deep sleep has its price: it requires vigilance. You have to regularly fluff the pillows and be careful not to fall asleep too early! Problems that keep you awake could be a good solution. And is everything going well on the train? Meanwhile, the landscape whizzes past the window, the journey to the non-place of deep sleep becomes a cinematic experience, a flickering dream of alarmed wakefulness. Will the four human animals ever reach their refuge, their den? A railroad movie, a chamber play.

          On November 25th at 9 p.m. there will be an Artist Talk with the performers of the film Vanessa Stern, Ursula Renneke, Stephanie Petrowitz, Valerie Oberhof, Dietmar Schmidt and Eike Böttcher. You can watch the livestream here.
