In OUT OF MIND Eva Meyer-Keller and her accomplices develop choreographic approaches to what we call consciousness and experience.

Festsaal | 15/10 €

Time out of Joint is a grotesque variety show of political speeches and a virtuously cacophonous concert of feminist struggles of the 20th century. Applying the tactic of tactlessness, utterances by historically influential female* speakers are dissected, distorted and recomposed. Dancing bodies explore rhetorical strategies as questions of rhythmic (re)arrangement and make voice audible as the battlefield of political representation.

Tanztage Berlin 2023

JANUAR 05 – 21

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.
