Pink people wanna know if other pink people like hip-hop 
how can it still be hip-hop? 
That’s like asking, if Black people like 
Dirty Harry 
is he still Clint Eastwood? (Greg Tate)

Gangstas, Pimps und Hoes: The US rap world is imbued with images of exaggerated masculinity. When Black artists such as Cam'ron and Kanye West launched a fashion trend of pink plush, fur and velour in the early 2000s, they proved that even Barbie’s favorite color could not damage their image of heterosexual hypermasculinity. Joana Tischkau draws on this occasion to reveal the fragility of social constructions such as race and gender: To what extent are bodies of the "other" used to consolidate the structural power of white Cis masculinity?

JOANA TISCHKAU dances. Her first dancing memory goes back to Kaoma’s 1989 Hit Lambada which she moved to at a children's birthday party. This experience led her to enroll at her neighborhood dance school for training in Jazzdance, Hip Hop and Videoclip Dancing. In 2010 she decided to make it official so she went on to study contemporary dance and theatre at Coventry University in the UK and choreography and performance at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies in Giessen. Her artistic practice is a hybrid mash-up where the writings of bell hooks meet beatboxing, whiteness is turned into a work-out, youtube tutorials become here only source material and where Roberto Blanco is hailed as an afro-german hero, subversively distorting socio-cultural practices, codes and meanings inscribed onto bodies of color within the context of pop culture, western art and dance history. Joana works independently as a choreographer, dancer and community dance artist and in teaching. One of her recent productions, PLAYBLACK is a copy of the 1990 Kids Television program Mini Playback Show and was invited to the Tanzplattform Deutschland in 2020. PLAYBLACK formed the conceptual breeding ground for BEING PINK AIN'T EASY.

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?

Tanztage Berlin 2021

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
