1 Festival – 3 Cities
Berlin – Warsaw – Salzburg
In the first week of November, Tanzfabrik Berlin welcomes the FEMINIST FUTURES FESTIVAL, one of the main events of the European project “apap – FEMINIST FUTURES”, co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme.
Continuing in Warsaw and Salzburg in November, the festival takes a journey through different parts of Europe. Some of the participating artists will travel to all three cities, where they will present different pieces and participate in discursive formats, and so spin a common thread to link the three European cultural institutions and their respective editions of the FEMINIST FUTURES FESTIVAL.
This journey was imagined and conceptualized in cooperation with two other institutions, Instytut Sztuk Performatywnych of Warsaw and SZENE, Salzburg, and three artists supported by the European project: Milla Koistinen, Sergiu Matis and Agata Maszkiewicz. Together, we devised a programme that does not focus exclusively on feminist topics but follows feminist guidelines. Our underlying aim was to challenge conventions in the arts regarding institutional decision-making, hierarchies and power structures, payment terms and so on.
From this enriching cooperation, a three-part festival was born, which will kick off with the Berlin edition. The Berlin audience can expect five days of wide-ranging artistic positions presented from all over Europe. The festival will then take place in Warsaw 17-20 November and in Salzburg November 25 - December 2. 
The Berlin edition of the festival will host performative works by Milla Koistinen, Ana Dubljevic, Sonya Lindfors and Sergiu Matis, an installation by Selma Selman and a film by Isabell Spengler, Antonia Baehr and Jule Flierl. Harun Morrison will travel to each of the festival’s stations with an artistic text to connect them.
In parallel, Tanzfabrik Berlin will also host the second part of the FEMINIST SCHOOL BERLIN to follow on from the first edition last September. The Feminist School aims to be a place of encounter between different concepts and lived experiences of feminism; a place where a variety of approaches to embodying, sharing, and practicing these principles can enter into a dialogue and inform and nurture one another.

Works by: Ana Dubljević, Milla Koistinen, Harun Morrison, Sonya Lindfors, Sergiu Matis, Selma Selman, Isabell Spengler, Antonia Baehr, Jule Flierl
