Tanztage Berlin provide new perspectives on the body
What's normal? Well, for one, the fact that everyone is different. And thus with the motto "Erfahrung von Differenz" (Experiences of difference), young Berlin choreographers question social norms and shift geographical, political and cultural borders at this year's Tanztage. The audience experiences physical diversity and new sensory perceptions in tanzfähig and Zwoisy Mears-Clarke’s "Subject of Position" through touching. The dance artist Reza Mirabi and Roland Walter, an activist for inclusion, research encounters and communication beyond language. In their fictional "Dance Atlas" Helen Schröder and the Neue Kompanie zip through all dance performances being staged in one specific time zone on one day: with minimal means, they represent the utopia of physical ubiquity on a table. Using dream protocols, Mey Seifan and the Tanwenn Company portray life in wartime Syria. Berlin dance horizons are expanded this time by two pieces in the Young Choreographers Festival from Athens. As always, roundtables, audience discussions and parties round out the Tanztage program.
