22nd International Festival Berlin
19.8. – 3.9.2010
During the 22nd edition of Tanz im August, we would like to draw your attention to a topic that has become increasingly important – not only in politics and the media, but also in contemporary dance: the ethics of human existence. More often, choreographies include appeals that we should deal with people and resources responsibly. Thus dance is given the function of social criticism.
We are also focusing on dance history and young choreographers’ works. In all, we have invited 38 productions from 19 countries. There are also workshops, installations, lms, lectures, discussions and the sommer.bar program.
