Thiago Granato


We are excited to share with you Thiago Granato’s video documentation “LISTEN.doc” by Zé de Paiva & Kathlenn Kunath, about his new dance piece and Tanz im August/HAU Hebbel am Ufer co-production “The Sound They Make When No One Listens”.

“LISTEN.doc” is available at Thiago Granato’s Vimeo channel: www.vimeo.com/thiagogranato

“LISTEN.doc is not a live performance streaming. LISTEN.doc is a video document. LISTEN.doc is a video documentation about “The Sound They Make When No One Listens”, a new dance piece by Thiago Granato. “The Sound They Make When No One Listens” had its premiere postponed two times due the Covid-19 Pandemic regulations. Despite of it, we were allowed to keep rehearsing and the work is ready to be shown live once the theaters will be allowed to welcome their audience again. For now you have the opportunity to watch at LISTEN.doc extracts from the piece and rehearsals intertwined with reading of book excerpts that nurtured the creation process.” – Thiago Granato

1000 Scores

“1000 Scores. Piece for Here, Now & Later”, a project by Helgard Haug, David Helbich and Cornelius Puschke, produced by Rimini Apparat, offers an online platform for scores commissioned from various artists.

With contributions by Chiara Bersani, Maija Hirvanen, Choy Ka Fai and Kettly Noël (Commissioned by Tanz im August / HAU Hebbel am Ufer & 1000 Scores. Pieces for Here, Now & Later).

Magazin im August

The festival is accompanied by a special edition of our Magazin im August, with portraits, interviews and articles on this year’s Special Edition as well as contributions from and about the artists whose work we would have liked to present live on stage.
