Living Room

Festsaal | 15/10 €

In Living Room Clémentine M. Songe (aka Clément Layes) explores the dynamics of the living room, that place where we surround ourself with things that feel familiar, intimate, recognizable, safe. Transforming this room into a ‘living room’, a room that makes its own choices. In collaboration with an architect, a light designer and a visual artist, Clémentine M. Songe bare the many interrelations that appear between our lives and this place, showing how much we take our habitual environment for granted, relying on it in order to feel ‘at home’ in the world.

Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz
© Jan Grygoriew


In tandem with emerging dance artists connected to our city, Tanztage Berlin 2022 continues to examine what keeps us together and tears us apart. After 2021 the festival took place exclusively online, its 31st edition returns as an extended offline and online program. Alongside the last year’s selection of performances, it includes new creations and discourse formats on power, protest, and empowerment. The work presented during Tanztage Berlin 2022 critically navigates the present by reimagining past and future encounters on the dance floor. While dealing with acute problems like power relations, surveillance, disembodiment, or climate change, it tunes into the social body, creating much-needed moments of awareness, connectedness, and self-determination. Unlike the 21st-century billionaire strategy of abandoning earth in a rocket ship or escaping into a parallel virtual universe, the festival chooses instead to stay with the trouble: to celebrate dancing together through the crisis and against despair.

A living archive of colonial legacy 

The term AZIMUT - from Arabic السموت, as-sumūt, is a term from astronomy and means, among other things, "the paths". Following the traces of colonialism, the young performers of the transnational ensemble Hajusom travelled to their countries of origin, bringing back stories and transforming thier memories into choreography and song. The multilingual performance with video recordings, installations, lectures and live music (Viktor Marek) reflects the intensity of the individual experiences, allowing the audience to be immersed in experienced and narrative memories, personal and collective histories. Do we all see the same stars?

HAJUSOM is a transnational ensemble that has been working in Hamburg since 1999. In cooperation with international guest artists, POC with and without refugee experience develop transdisciplinary performances, which are premiered at the co-production partner Kampnagel before being shown on other major stages in Germany and abroad, often in festival contexts.
