Working in the field of contemporary art today means creating occasions, contexts, and times that show no longer "what art is" but "what art does". Tanzfabrik Berlin Bühne has a wide range of formats to frame the artistic projects that are taking place in our yearly program.
Since autumn 2022, Tanzfabrik Berlin Bühne's presentation format "Folds" has stood for a recurring condensation of artistic projects linked by a loose thematic or conceptual framework. The concept of Falten is neither a season nor a festival. It operates in the in-between and takes place at irregular intervals throughout the year. As heterogeneous events, the folds include talks, screenings, performative exhibitions, first rehearsal impressions and premieres.
Tanznacht Berlin presents the diversity of choreographic work by artists living and working in Berlin. The festival has been presented by Tanzfabrik Berlin at Uferstudios since 2008. The format changes every two years by including a new curator and is intended to reflect changes within artistic processes and public discourses. Tanznacht Berlin was initiated for the first time in 2000 in the wake of the inspiring 20th anniversary celebration of Tanzfabrik Berlin. This artistic congregation of Berlin’s dance community sends clear cultural policy signals and provides an opportunity for intensive exchange. Since 2012, the discursive format Tanznacht Forum has been offered in the years between editions of the Tanznacht Berlin festival.
