In various formats of discussion and encounter, topics that concern, challenge and connect us will also take place beyond the stage. "Dance and Crisis", "Dance and Society", "Dance and Transformation" – together we want to negotiate our (own) mode of crisis, reflect on the past two (pandemic) years as not only a collective experience and trace its difficulties and opportunities. We would like to ask ourselves how dance can act politically as a social practice, how we can recognise and overcome our own (unconscious) discriminatory and exclusionary mechanisms, how dance can become part of an overarching social transformation - towards a sustainable vision of the future.
On three mornings during Tanzplattform, tak Theatre will be a place of exchange between Berlin and international stake holders, guests of Tanzplattform, the audience, the jury and the artists.
Moreover, the audience can expect Late Night Moves with Olympia Bukkakis, artist/audience discussions and the encounter format Never Walk Alone at the festival's various venues.
