In a performative online lab that is comedy, talk, and game show all at once, hannsjana confront the mechanisms of exclusion in scientific disciplines.

Why do comparably few women* study computer science? Which stereotypical and sexist views underlie the formulation ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ disciplines? In their usual humorous manner, hannsjana reprogram a Zoom meeting into a late-night show. The performers calculate the course of the evening with a curve sketching, bring the smallest particles in physical models to collision and let earthworm and amoeba discuss biological peculiarities. In a scientific spectacle of empowerment and exchange, Die große M.I.N.T.-Show melts mounting fears and brings expert knowledge back down to earth.

Since 2011 Laura Besch, Alice Escher, Jule Gorke, Lotte Schüßler, Katharina Siemann and Marie Weich have been creating performances and audio walks as the artist collective HANNSJANA. In their artistic work, they challenge existing assumptions and engage with places and spaces in a humorous, poetic, musical and scientific way in order to make them experienceable and explainable to themselves and others. They have been shown at the Nationaltheater Mannheim, at the Kunstfest Weimar, at Theater Thikwa and at the Museum für Kommunikation Berlin. At the SOPHIENSÆLE they most recently showed their audio walk Anstattführung.

May 27 28 29 30
Online-Installation
Online | Eintritt frei

As part of PAF Introducing ..., the online-installation negotiates issues of class, gender and migration. In a subtle way it plays with conventions of fashion shows and refers to a current phenomenon in which so-called "workwear" finds its way into high fashion contexts. What's classy if you're rich, but trashy if you're poor?

JANUARY 07 to ∞

Dear Audience, dear Friends of Tanztage Berlin,

due to the ongoing uncertain planning situation, after three attempts of postponing the festival since January 2021, we have to inform you with a heavy heart that the event won’t take place this year. The twelve performances we were supposed to present received an invitation to participate in its next edition in January 2022. The artists received their production/revival grants, cancellation fees, and rehearsal space and dramaturgical support throughout the season. The works are finished and ready to be presented live. On July 1st, we are going to publish an open call for Tanztage Berlin 2022. We would like to thank the artists and our audience for their patience and understanding. We were very happy about the interest in our online kickoff of the Tanztage in January – you can still find the podcasts of the online kickoff on our website
