Salomé dances for her life, and we dance with her! At the fair she stomps from stall to stall, shuffling, tripping, dissolving, jumping, puffing, but always with abandon. Dancing her way through seven veils and kissing the severed head of John the Baptist. Tonight Salomé is much more than the fleeting supporting character from the Bible. Tonight she has outstanding concentration, a metaphysical imagination - and she carries a lot of love. 
After their celebrated performance Notre Carmen, the Berlin music theatre collective Hauen und Stechen now present their version of Salomé. Loosely based on the opera by Richard Strauss and the text by Oscar Wilde, the performance alternates between music and dance - and is a film, a journey, a fair and a dance of death all in one. The motifs of desire, guilt and innocence, lust and refusal tell a story of cutting and stabbing beyond stereotypical gender attributions: Salomé is many. The performers walk with the audience through the seven veil attractions of the Salomé universe as if through a theatre of hell. The audience does not enter a spiritual retreat, a purified field. Rather, it is a pulsating battle zone in which the mundane meets the spiritual. And so it comes as it must: Whoever lifts one veil must die. Whoever lifts all of them dies later - and wiser.

The way we perceive our reality is shaped by the language of our senses. But what happens when this fine interplay is disturbed? A search for traces of perception and experience.

History has failed us, but... deals with physical forms of protest and searches for a solidary togetherness while taking into account different bodies. Which narratives and images of resistance are remembered - and how are they told?

For a long time now, collective mourning and its rituals have been disappearing from public space. Golden Gate questions our normative perceptions of loss and mourning. What is queer grief and in what way can it become a collective movement of melancholy and resistance?

JANUARY 06-22

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.
