33rd International Festival Berlin
The 33rd edition of Tanz im August featured many world premieres and German premieres in the programme, enabling national and international artists to present new works to the public after the long period of lockdowns and restrictions due to the pandemic. In 2021, special attention was given to productions dedicated to postcolonial themes.
Virve Sutinen, Artistic Director Tanz im August:“Dance is alive. The brilliant artists we were able to present in the festival have brought the magic of dance back to the stage with energy, passion and joy, making it a great success in uncertain times.”
From 6–22 August more than 100 artists from 20 countries presented a total of 14 productions and other artistic formats in around 70 performances. A total of 6 world premieres and 7 German premieres were shown at HAU Hebbel am Ufer and 10 different locations across Berlin.
