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

JANUARY 06-22

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.

Pink people wanna know if other pink people like hip-hop 
how can it still be hip-hop? 
That’s like asking, if Black people like 
Dirty Harry 
is he still Clint Eastwood? (Greg Tate)

Gangstas, Pimps und Hoes: The US rap world is imbued with images of exaggerated masculinity. When Black artists such as Cam'ron and Kanye West launched a fashion trend of pink plush, fur and velour in the early 2000s, they proved that even Barbie’s favorite color could not damage their image of heterosexual hypermasculinity. Joana Tischkau draws on this occasion to reveal the fragility of social constructions such as race and gender: To what extent are bodies of the "other" used to consolidate the structural power of white Cis masculinity?

JOANA TISCHKAU dances. Her first dancing memory goes back to Kaoma’s 1989 Hit Lambada which she moved to at a children's birthday party. This experience led her to enroll at her neighborhood dance school for training in Jazzdance, Hip Hop and Videoclip Dancing. In 2010 she decided to make it official so she went on to study contemporary dance and theatre at Coventry University in the UK and choreography and performance at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen. Her artistic practice is a hybrid mash-up where the writings of bell hooks meet beatboxing, whiteness is turned into a work-out, youtube tutorials become here only source material and where Roberto Blanco is hailed as an afro-german hero, subversively distorting socio-cultural practices, codes and meanings inscribed onto bodies of color within the context of pop culture, western art and dance history. Joana works independently as a choreographer, dancer and community dance artist and in teaching. One of her recent productions, PLAYBLACK is a copy of the 1990 Kids Television program Mini Playback Show and was invited to the Tanzplattform Deutschland in 2020. PLAYBLACK formed the conceptual breeding ground for BEING PINK AIN'T EASY.
