About Denglisch, Stand-up-comedy and Tanzfabrik Berlin.
Gayle Tufts is a writer, singer and entertainer who feels at home in a wide variety of genres. Famous for her evenings that do not want to end and her verbal flourishes full of anecdotes, she continues to work today on the revitalization of the classic cabaret form, mixing music, comedy and choreography. In 1991, the U.S.-American artist was drawn to her new home of choice, Berlin, for the second time – and into the studios of Tanzfabrik on Möckernstraße. She dances, sings, directs and teaches. In conversation with Gayle Tufts, the freelance curator Heike Albrecht will explore her special combination of language, music and dance while looking back on her time working with Tanzfabrik Berlin.
With Gayle Tufts, Heike Albrecht and original film excerpts of dance pieces of Tanzfabrik Berlin | The planned film excerpts are taken from the archive of the Akademie der Künste and have been digitized on the initiative of the International Theater Institute/Mime Centrum as part of the Digitalisierungsprogramm des Landes Berlin with the aim of making them accessible to interested people.
