On 8 and 9 January 2015 (8:30 pm) the festival of young Berlin choroegraphy Tanztage Berlin 2015, taking place at Sophiensaele, will welcome premiere performancers of A Queer Kind of Evidence by Ania Nowak and Martin Hansen.
A Queer Kind of Evidence approaches time as contingent and malleable. It endures and cracks open time’s ?eternalness? within the prescribed 50-minute frame of a theatre appointment. Sonic Youth’s 1990 seminal album Goo and Karen Carpenter’s story of slow disappearance and decreation coexist in a time of relentless pleasure which diffuses any promise of production, hope or progress. We are disappearing the tenses.
On 17 and 18 January 2015 (8:30 pm) the festival’s audience will be treated to Feeling Real by Alexander Baczynski-Jenkins. Before and after the performance on 17 January the choreographer will meet the public.
The performance Feeling real is a movement on the dance floors of the queer club culture and seeks to make a counter vision for the future tangible. Alexander Baczynski-Jenkins and performers from the East London club scene develop a new hybrid ritual for the 21st century out of a mélange of pop-culture references.
