Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz
© Jan Grygoriew

JANUARY 06-22

In tandem with emerging dance artists connected to our city, Tanztage Berlin 2022 continues to examine what keeps us together and tears us apart. After 2021 the festival took place exclusively online, its 31st edition returns as an extended offline and online program. Alongside the last year’s selection of performances, it includes new creations and discourse formats on power, protest, and empowerment. The work presented during Tanztage Berlin 2022 critically navigates the present by reimagining past and future encounters on the dance floor. While dealing with acute problems like power relations, surveillance, disembodiment, or climate change, it tunes into the social body, creating much-needed moments of awareness, connectedness, and self-determination. Unlike the 21st-century billionaire strategy of abandoning earth in a rocket ship or escaping into a parallel virtual universe, the festival chooses instead to stay with the trouble: to celebrate dancing together through the crisis and against despair.

Open Call: Peer to Peer-Academy on age(ing) in the independent scene

FESTIVAL COMING OF AGE
INTERGENERATIONAL PEER TO PEER-ACADEMY ON AGE(ING) IN THE INDEPENDENT SCENE

OCTOBER 27 | 10-15 H

TALK ON ZOOM
IN GERMAN, ENGLISH

FREE ADMISSION

As part of the performance festival COMING OF AGE, which is dedicated to questions of age(s) in society and theater from September 15 to November 7, the Sophiensæle is looking for protagonists of the independent theater scene who are interested in intergenerational exchange. In moderated peer-to-peer conversations we want to deal with aging in the independent scene and look for new ways and forms of intergenerational exchange of experiences and mutual support. To this end, we would like to invite people of different ages and with diverse perspectives, work and experience backgrounds to enter into a dialogue with each other, to exchange experiences, and to share knowledge and insights.

WHO Protagonists from the independent theater, dance and performance scene (e.g. artists, performers, dramaturges, technicians, producers, house directors, etc.).

WHEN Oct. 27, 2021, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. (incl. one hour lunch break from 12 p.m.-1 p.m.)

WHERE Online/Zoom (Zoom link will follow after registration)

You can REGISTER until October 04 at the following mail address: dramaturgie@sophiensaele.com or via phone by calling Agnieszka Habraschka: +49 (0)30 27 89 00-39.

NOTE ON ACCESSIBILITY When registering, please let us know your access-needs (what accessibility you must have in order to participate). 

Please write us a few lines about yourself (max. 250 words): How old are you in the independent scene (we don't just mean your biological age, but also your perceived age in the context of your work)? What kind of work do you do in the independent scene? What role does age(ing) play in your work practice? And what are your interests in this topic?

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO EXCITING CONVERSATIONS AND EXCHANGES WITH YOU!
