Suitable for english speakers <br> Weitere Vorstellungen am 29.+30.01.2015

DRAGANA BULUT and the Julius-Hans-Spiegel-Zentrum will celebrate the legendary Serbian choreographer and dancer Kokana Šanić Koka’s anniversary. With a background in folk dance, cabaret and magic, she has developed a performative practice that has been acclaimed and deeply appreciated in her local context and has strongly influenced a number of young Balkan choreographers. She has performed with Meg Stuart, Tino Sehgal, Sent M’Ahesa, Ivo Dimchev, among others, and together with writer Ana Vujanović, she ran a small travelling shop selling Balkan theoretical and artistic souvenirs. This will be the first occasion to gain insight into her seminal work up-close in Berlin.

The Julius-Hans-Spiegel-Zentrum is a special guest of the Tanztage Berlin. As a mobile research space, the Julius-Hans-Spiegel-Zentrum examines the interweaving of different dance cultures since the modern period. This center, along with its archives, has been a guest of the Sophiensæle since November and is departing Berlin with a thematic weekend bash on january 29th till 31st. Beginning with the archive box 942n, a historical collection of dance photographs, various artists in residence have been creating new pieces since November. The pieces by Florentina Holzinger/Vincent Riebeek and Nelisiwe Xaba were created during the Spiegel-Zentrums sojourn in Freiburg and will be presented in Berlin for the first time.
