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.

          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.
