Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017

29.06.2017-28.07.2017

“Open Spaces” and “Sommer Tanz” are working hand-in-hand again this summer on stage and in the studios of Tanzfabrik Berlin. This is a duo that really has it! Exciting premieres and rehearsal visits with international choreographers and dancers accompany diverse workshops with acclaimed teachers from all over the world in Kreuzberg and Wedding. Our studios will once more become open spaces for experimenting with movement, reflection and for exchanging ideas with one another.

The performance program extends over three weekends in June and July with numerous performances and presents insights into the making of contemporary dance by young, emerging artists that Tanzfabrik has been supporting for years. There are a great number of differences in the work of Rosalind Crisp, Sergiu Matis, Karol Tyminski and Andrew Wass. At their core, however, they are connected by the desire to free themselves from a style of training that restricts the body in its options. Their performances during “Open Spaces” vividly demonstrate how different the search for an innate movement can be; regardless of whether this is used in conjunction with improvisation, daily dance practice or the creation of performances and choreo- graphies: virtuosity beyond entrenched training techniques - a field of research that Tanzfabrik explores together with its protagonists.

“Time to Meet” is an exchange format with a special face that turns itself to the people behind the artists. This summer, there will be multiple opportunities to look behind the scenes and get to know Rosalind Crisp, David Bloom, Ellinor Ljungkvist, Colette Sadler, Renae Shadler and Julian Weber with insight into their work and through conversation.
With “mapping dance berlin”, Tanzbüro Berlin provides the framework for the conversations with the audiences during Open Spaces. Using new formats, Tanzfabrik Berlin allows the audience to immerse themselves even more deeply into the experience of choreographic practice.

The workshops will take place during the last three weeks of July, with a range of formats for all levels of experience and many teachers that are also choreographers and performers. A program of talks and lectures will deepen and illuminate these intensive working phases.

During the last years „Sommer Tanz“ has continuously expanded its programme of integrated dance workshops, inviting both participants and teachers of physical diversity into the workshops. This is also one of the main reasons, why one part of the workshop programme is taking place at the wheelchair accessible Tanzfabrik Wedding in Uferstudios. We are very happy to acknowledge that every year a growing number of workshops and teachers are opening up to physical diversity. And, slowly but surely, each year we welcome a few more participants with disabilities that trust us enough to often really jump into the unknown.

Here’s to inspiration and excellent exchange!
