40 Years Tanzfabrik Berlin

Remembering the Future - Tanzfabrik Berlin celebrates 40 years of activity

40 years marked by several transformations and one call that never changed: supporting, advocating and developing contemporary dance in Berlin. »Remembering the Future« is an invitation to not have a nostalgic look on this rich history, but to build on it imagining a different tomorrow.

14. - 27.07.18 Open Spaces / Sommer Tanz
Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz in this anniversary summer: a guided tour of the city by Gabriele Reuter, a poster series, a film installation and talks on the anniversary as well as premieres by a.o. André Uerba, Lina Gómez, Juan Domínguez, Enrico Ticconi & Ginevra Panzetti and the stage comeback of Gisela Müller with the Gebrüder Teichmann. Two labs around our theme „Remembering the Future“ in Kreuzberg and Wedding invite to research and exchange on the topics of memory, utopia and physical diversity in dance. 13 Sommer Tanz workshops, lectures, showings and talks with international artist teachers such as Adam Benjamin, Kirstie Simson, Jeremy Wade, Rob Hayden, Claudia Feest, Koffi Kôkô and many more complete the program to a summer that invites to both watch and participate.

We are happy to invite you to raise a glass with us and celebrate this incredible journey. Don’t miss our celebration day during Tanznacht Berlin 2018, including the launch of a publication, special projects and several performances. Come and dance with us!

03.-09.09.2018 Jubilee Edition - Dance Classes

Once a lamp factory. Later a shoe factory. Since 1978 a place where the development and transmission of contemporary dance in its multiple facets, is being made accessible to a wide audience. For a week we will celebrate this place, where everything has started, and where dance has been and still is a means of encounter and exchange.
In this sense, the jubilee edition is dedicated to the dance classes of Tanzfabrik Kreuzberg and its activities. During one week the doors will open to a diverse and experimental program of labs, workshops, lectures, improv sessions and jams, as well as classes in co-teaching formats. Teachers of the dance classes, collaborating artists, past and present participants of the Dance Intensive program will convey and share their approaches and points of view by these diversified formats. Showings, performances and a cross generational improvisation, will conclude the week. On the last Sunday we invite all of you to a special long table on the street at Möckernstrasse to eat, drink and dance with us. Finally the week will close with a somatic walk in the nearby Victoriapark, to which everyone is welcome to join.
Remembering the Future provides the contextual frame of this week. We invite you to celebrate a grown place with us, where movement and dance has been, and still is a driving force of transformations for many people- then, today and in a possible future.

The regular course program will start on September 10th 2018.

With the kind support of
