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.

Festsaal | 25/15 €

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.

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:

The Haptic Access Tour starts at 1.45 pm. Please register and reserve a headset at or +49 (0) 30 259004-27. Live audio description & Haptic Access Tour by Gravity Access Service Berlin*

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. Click HERE to find information about performance spaces and pathways, accessible restrooms, parking, directions to the theater, a 360° video tour of the building, and more.

Sheena McGrandles is a dancer and choreographer living in Berlin. She works in various contexts including theatre/stage, education and independent art and culture projects. Her current group of works explores radical temporality as a means of detailed exploration and exaggeration of movement. Her works create hyper-real, multi-narrative and humorous moving landscapes. Sheena presents her works nationally and internationally, including London (The Place), Amsterdam (something raw), Berlin (Sophiensæle), Mexico City (Museo Universitario Del Chopo), Los Angeles (PSSST). With Figured, Sheena McGrandles was invited to the Tanzplattform 2020.
