In the piece, which is both music theatre and dance performance, the audience itself becomes part of a living sound installation. Electronic sounds emanate from their own mobile phone loudspeakers, which change depending on the distance to the performers and merge into a single collective body of sound.

Inspired by the historical phenomenon of dance frenzy - the solo dance mixes ecstatic eruptions with pounding beats and is party, spoken word concert and expression of physical madness to exhaustion all in one.

TO ALL emerging DANCE ARTISTS BASED IN BERLIN

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 5-21 January 2023 - however, the form as well as the exact date will depend on the constant reassessment of the pandemic. 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.

German premiere

● 25.8. Meet the Artist

In Thank You For Coming: Space, American performance artist Faye Driscoll, alone on stage, constructs a dynamic group experience. Immersed in an intricate installation, wired for sound and upheld by pulleys, ropes and the weight of others, she sifts through a whirlwind of emotions and delves into the deeply human forces of love and loss. A radical vulnerability emerges as she explores the inter-connectivity of bodies and ever-morphing states of togetherness. Conjuring the transformative powers of presence and of absence, Space paves the way for a shared rite of passage.
