Every new year, the Tanztage Berlin is not only the city's very first festival, it has also established itself nationally and internationally as an important platform for emerging dance artists since its founding in 1996. The next edition of Tanztage Berlin will once again take place under the artistic direction of Mateusz Szymanówka. The festival is currently planned for 5-20 January 2024. The festival offers emerging dance artists based in Berlin a framework for their new productions and revivals. The programme of the last two editions can be found at: https://tanztage-berlin.sophiensaele.com.

History from an everyday perspective.
Inspired by the East German feminist bestseller Guten Morgen, du Schöne (1977), Mädler/Dröscher talked to Berlin women of different origins. In an audiovisual installation they trace the individual maps of their present, past and future as well as the correlations between origin and direction: Which paths appear to be desirable and realisable? In spite of all the differences, shared points of view open up.
