Back to the future: In Die Vielhundertjährigen, the audience is contacted by the only contemporary witnesses of a long-gone division between the biological and the digital. These people, several hundred years old, are now inhabitants of a post-digital world. Based on fantasies and wishes for the world, the ensemble, ranging in age from 65 to 87, create their own science fiction narrative.

Pas de Q enters the classical ballet world to turn choreographic forms and traditions upside down and reinvent them. A queer ensemble of male and non-binary dancers
pushes movement, dance and queer aesthetics to the extreme. In a utopian science fiction world, the team fuses drag art and pointe dance into a labyrinth of imaginative perversions, beyond morality and shame.

In the scenic adaptation of his own text, the Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf deals with loss from a queer perspective: the loss of family, home and relationships, but also that of meaning and language. The audience enters a place where fragments overlap. Two figures move through scenes whose internal coherence continues to unravel through memories, anecdotes, and associative references.

Tanztage Berlin 2023
© Jan Grygoriew

Hey, why do you look so tired? "Urgency culture" expects us to be connected and responsive constantly. There is little to no time left to imagine the world otherwise. Tanztage Berlin – a yearly festival highlighting the work of the city's emerging dance makers – is back to diagnose the present and predict the future. Its 32nd edition investigates our daily overstimulation and chronic fatigue by reflecting on how we move to the rhythm of today's high-speed, social media-driven reality and its challenges.

An abrupt change of direction, a sudden interruption, a wink, passing glances, a fast-forward and a stutter  – FLUSH! Three performers move along or between five chipboard walls and expand everyday gestures into a spectacle of sensual slippy time. Erotic overtones and precise movement patterns in stop, slow and fast motion decouple subtexts and details of urban digital reality from their unambiguous narratives, only to present them in the next moment as oddly familiar.

Strong fragrances and smells will be used. The show comprises sudden light changes involving flash and stroboscopic lights and moments with a total blackout. The audience area on the tribune is seated.  We recommend arriving early to select a suitable seat.
