Living Room
November 28 | 16.00
Festsaal | 15/10 €

In Living Room Clémentine M. Songe (aka Clément Layes) explores the dynamics of the living room, that place where we surround ourself with things that feel familiar, intimate, recognizable, safe. Transforming this room into a ‘living room’, a room that makes its own choices. In collaboration with an architect, a light designer and a visual artist, Clémentine M. Songe bare the many interrelations that appear between our lives and this place, showing how much we take our habitual environment for granted, relying on it in order to feel ‘at home’ in the world.

Through playful and practical examinations of the themes and working methods of the dance piece and through the exchange of interesting and questionable information, the workshop participants will be introduced to the upcoming performance event. We experiment in exercises with associations to butterflies, deceleration and elements from the Nō Theater. Through simple exercises we discover our senses and approach other perspectives of encounters, objects, bodies and music.

Tanztage Berlin 2022
Tanztage HP mit Text schwarz
© Jan Grygoriew


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.
