TANZTAGE BERLIN 2012

TANZTAGE BERLIN 2012

2012 JanuarY 05-15

Berlin is a constant magnet for young, international artists - the influx of dancers and choreographers is unbroken, not only because of the low cost of living, but also because of the many opportunities for exchange and inspiration: In which other city is there a dance office where dancers and choreographers can find all important information and a strong partner for problem solving? Where else is professional dance training offered at up to six different locations? Where else can you find numerous performance opportunities, such as at the ada Studio for Contemporary Dance, Tanzfabrik Berlin and Dock11, among others? And where else in Europe do two of the most distinguished contemporary choreographers, Sasha Waltz and Meg Stuart, work in independent structures?

TANZTAGE BERLIN is an important presentation platform for young choreographers. As part of Berlin's independent dance scene, it is also one of the festival's tasks to protect and expand these independent professional structures, as well as to strengthen them in terms of cultural policy. For the 21st time, the TANZTAGE 2012 will show new, progressive positions in contemporary dance in all rooms of the Sophiensæle. Between political analysis, the place of dance in society and a new look at the musical genre, various artistic approaches will be explored. The interface of dance, visual arts, music and performance plays an important role.

The young choreographers of the festival come from various international training institutes (e.g. SNDO Amsterdam, SEAD Salzburg), but increasingly also from the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz Berlin. From the pilot phase of the HZT, for example, An Kaler and Kai Simon Stöger are represented in 2012. We are looking forward to discovering new talents together with the audience again this year.
