Festsaal | 25/15 €

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.

7.8. ● Meet the Artist

“I have three problems: capitalism, the patriarchy and why art can’t manage to save us.” Canadian choreographer Frédérick Gravel peels back the layers of his psyche, unveiling his fears and unleashing the monster of greed in an exposing solo. Seamlessly shifting between dance, song and self-therapy, he is joined by a rock band in the shadows and left to confront his emotions in the spotlight. In a charged performance he transforms the anxiety that throws us off balance into an honest attempt at reconnecting with the world.

TO ALL emerging DANCE ARTISTS BASED IN BERLIN

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: https://tanztage-berlin.sophiensaele.com.
