Performance
Hochzeitssaal | 15/10 €

Back to the future: In Die Vielhundertjährigen, the audience is contacted by the only contemporary witnesses of a long-gone division between the biological and the digital. These people, several hundred years old, are now inhabitants of a post-digital world. Based on fantasies and wishes for the world, the ensemble, ranging in age from 65 to 87, create their own science fiction narrative.

Tickets
Festsaal | 15/10 €

Pas de Q enters the classical ballet world to turn choreographic forms and traditions upside down and reinvent them. A queer ensemble of male and non-binary dancers
pushes movement, dance and queer aesthetics to the extreme. In a utopian science fiction world, the team fuses drag art and pointe dance into a labyrinth of imaginative perversions, beyond morality and shame.

Tickets
Hochzeitssaal | 15/10 €

In the scenic adaptation of his own text, the Syrian-German performance and video artist Enad Marouf deals with loss from a queer perspective: the loss of family, home and relationships, but also that of meaning and language. The audience enters a place where fragments overlap. Two figures move through scenes whose internal coherence continues to unravel through memories, anecdotes, and associative references.

Hey, why do you look so tired? "Urgency culture" expects us to be connected and responsive constantly. There is little to no time left to imagine the world otherwise. Tanztage Berlin – a yearly festival highlighting the work of the city's emerging dance makers – is back to diagnose the present and predict the future. Its 32nd edition investigates our daily overstimulation and chronic fatigue by reflecting on how we move to the rhythm of today's high-speed, social media-driven reality and its challenges.

All performances will take place under consideration of current legal protection and hygiene measures [1]. Detailed information about the current Covid-19 hygiene rules [1] and tickets can be found HERE.

Disabled people get a reduced-price ticket. Those who require personal assistance will receive a free ticket for them. The companion ticket can be booked online, by telephone or at the box office in combination with a reduced ticket called “„ermäßigt (Behinderung)” or – as a wheelchair user – “ermäßigt (mit Rollstuhl)“. Due to safety regulations, a maximum of two people in wheelchairs are permitted per event in the Festsaal and Hochzeitssaal.

The box office opens 2 hours before the performance begins. Our ticket telephone 030 283 52 66 is staffed from Monday to Friday between 4 and 6 pm.

Further information on ticketsales can be found here.

SPACES AND ROUTES
The Kantine is at ground level and accessible without steps. The Festsaal (1st floor) and Hochzeitssaal (3rd floor) can be reached via an elevator (1.76 m x 2.71 m) when accompanied by the house staff. To use the elevator please contact our evening staff. The distance from the street to the elevator is approx. 60 m. The distance from the street to the ticket office is approx. 25 m. Find a 360° tour through the building here.

ACCESSIBLE BATHROOMS
An accessible toilet (entrance door 1m in width) is available on the 1st floor and can be reached via the elevator. It can be accessed via the Festsaal foyer. For events in the Hochzeitssaal there is a WC on the 3rd floor with an entrance and cabin door 81 cm wide, the other cabin doors are 56 cm wide. From the 3rd floor as well as from the ground floor you can reach the accessible WC on the 1st floor by using the elevator.

EARLY BOARDING
There is free seating in the Sophiensaele. If, for artistic reasons, the door to the auditorium does not open until very shortly before the performance begins, there is the option of early boarding. This is the early admission for all people (especially with visible or non-visible disabilities) who want a specific seat or a more relaxed admission. Early Boarding usually starts 10-20 minutes before the performance starts. The meeting point is next to the bar. Five minutes before Early Boarding begins, an on-site announcement will draw your attention to it once again. Our evening staff will be happy to help you find the meeting point. If you need a beanbag or wheelchair seat, please book it online via our webshop.

ACCESSIBILITY INFORMATION
We aim to provide individual "accessibility information" for each piece in our program. This includes information on lighting and sound, special effects such as fog, possible trigger content, the seating and audience situation and more. As of two weeks before the first performance date you will find the accessibility information below the announcement text of each performance on our website.

AUDIODESCRIPTION AND STAGE TOURS
We regularly offer audiodescriptions and stage tours of selected performances to make them accessible to blind and visually impaired people. The stage tour starts 75 minutes prior to the performance. The stage space is explored, props and costumes are described. The performers introduce and describe themselves. In the audiodescription over wireless headphones the processes on stage are described. This gives people with visual impairments access to the visual elements of a performance: movement, gestures, facial expressions, stage design, costumes and props are described. Places for audio description are limited. Registration at barrierefreiheit@sophiensaele.com or 030 27 89 00 35.

We offer a pick-up service for blind and visually impaired people from the nearby S-Bahn and subway stations Hackescher Markt and Weinmeisterstraße. To make use of the pick-up service, please contact Hannah Aldinger within our office hours (Monday to Friday, 10am - 6pm) at 030 27 89 00 35 or barrierefreiheit@sophiensaele.com.
