The interdisciplinary project Terrestrial Transit deals with the activist practice of artistic intervention, which is gaining importance again in the former communist countries of Eastern Europe, in view of the strengthening of right-wing authoritarian regimes. The work of the dance company Cranky Bodies a/company, founded in August 2020 by Peter Pleyer and Michiel Keuper, refers in particular to political forms of protest in the tradition of Polish and Hungarian dance and performance art before the fall of the Wall.

TO ALL emerging DANCE ARTISTS BASED IN BERLIN

Every new year, the Tanztage Berlin is not only the city's very first festival, it has also established itself nationally and internationally as an important platform for emerging dance artists since its founding in 1996. The next edition of Tanztage Berlin will once again take place under the artistic direction of Mateusz Szymanówka. The festival is currently planned for 5-21 January 2023 - however, the form as well as the exact date will depend on the constant reassessment of the pandemic. The festival offers emerging dance artists based in Berlin a framework for their new productions and revivals. The programme of the last two editions can be found at: https://tanztage-berlin.sophiensaele.com.

Outreach

Education

The Sophiensæle consider themselves to be an open venue in which interaction and exchange with the audience play a central role. In artist-workshops and our so called Tischgesellschaften, which create an informal space for exchange, the audience gets a chance to get to know the artists and learn more about their artistic practices. In the workshop series Raus aus dem Kopf, rein in den Körper (Getting out of your head, into your body), pedagogues get inspiration for their work with children, adolescents and adults and in the workshop Was ist eigentlich...Performance?! young students can explore by themselves what performance art actually means.

In addition to our regular offers, you are welcome to contact us in order to arrange group visits or individual offers such as production-related workshops, introductions and/or follow-up discussions with the artists. Students receive reduced tickets at the price of 10€ and for group orders the accompanying person receives a free ticket.

WORKSHOP For students

Was ist eigentlich… Performance?!
Why does the artist Marina Abramovic tear her hair out? Does theatre need a theatre room? Can locusts make theatre plays? In this workshop we will explore together where the difference between a play, a production and a performance lies and what performance actually means. We will present different performative strategies and try them out together. We will practice performing actions instead of playing roles. Together we will look for ways to stage reality. We will ask places and objects about their stories. And we will practice telling lies that sound like truth. The workshop is aimed at groups of students aged 15 and over (9th grade) and can take place either at Sophiensæle (Sophienstraße 18, 10178 Berlin) or in the premises of the school, depending on availability.

THE REGISTRATION AND INDIVIDUAL appointment for the workshop can be made by e-mail or telephone with Gina Jeske at jeske@sophiensaele.com / Tel: 030-27 89 00 35.

 

WORKSHOPS FOR PEDAGOGUES


For pedagogues, we regularly offer production-related workshops. Here the participants gain in-depth insights into current issues and artistic approaches in the performing arts. They explore the ways in which these are enriching and applicable for their (scenic) work with children, adolescents and adults and test ideas and methods for the preparation and follow-up of dance and theatre visits with young students. Upon request, you will receive a certificate of attendance stating the duration and content of the training.

Raus aus dem Kopf, rein in den Körper - Workshop fOR MORE MOVEMENT AND PHYSICALITY
The workshop series for everyone who wants to bring more movement into their (working) everyday life! Different exercises and small choreographies which are easily transferable to practice with children, teenagers and adults are tested playfully. A script summarizes all the exercises in a detailed guide for your own pedagogical work. Previous dancing or somatic experience is not required. Please bring comfortable clothes and something to drink.

DIRECTION Amelie Mallmann
