OPEN SPACES / SOMMER TANZ takes place at two locations - in Wedding and in Kreuzberg. We are very happy about the international cast and the upcoming premieres by and with artists from Albania, Australia, Germany, Estonia, France, Greece, India, Iran, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Norway, Austria, Sweden, Serbia and the US. Berlin's youngest collective - SUDDENLY - will open our summer program with its second premiere: In the district Wedding, eleven brilliant dancers are working on Lyllie Rouvière's concept for thecreation of a new dance: Inspired by the idea of a Junkspace(Rem Kolhaas), the collective will process from Gesundbrunnen across the stage and to the garden of the Uferstudios. With her current solo work, Ixchel Mendoza Hernández explores the permanence of an imperceptible change. Jess Curtis asks for the visible without seeing.
The research studio of Tanzfabrik and the apap - production studio in the Uferstudios is dedicated to the experiments of Maik Riebort & Eva Pfitzenmaier, Rilaben, Andrea Rama & Xeni Alexandrou alias Porson's Khashoggi and apap artist Julia Schwarzbach. Darko Dragičević concludes the performance series with artists from Berlin and Belgrade through a practice of failure as an alternative to the compulsion to succeed.
Tanzfabrik Berlin is looking forward to many reunions and new horizons!

Reflecting on artistic co-creations between kids and adults, Julia Schwarzbach currently develops a workshop series together with dramaturg/mentor Silke Bake and dance theorist Anna Leon. She proposes spaces where theory and practical tasks can be explored by young and old alike. She focuses on existing examples and conducts a series of interviews with artists in diverse situations of co-creating with kids. She asks which spaces are given to young people to have a say, how artistic work is affected by the presence and intuitive knowledge of kids and how that might change our wider understanding of (artistic) work.
