soundance festival berlin

June 14 - 27, 2021 Online | Streaming

In its fifth year, the festival once again presents a multifaceted program of artistic positions ranging from contemporary dance to sound art, real-time music, electronics and improvisation at DOCK11 and in the city space.

Inspired by Morse code, a dancer and a musician create a new sensory language, stereotypes about the body are turned upside down and sensor interfaces create perceptual abstractions.
Baroque scream dance meets mimicry, skin begins to see, and breathing and voice take us on a quest for community.

More than 66 artists can be experienced in 16 pieces and 6 video dance music films for the audience on the streaming platform dringeblieben from June 14 - 27, 2021 !

The artist talk "Producing inclusively" with the initiative tanzfähig and the audio descriptor Imke Baumann thematizes empirical values of inclusive project work.

"Floating soundance" as an artistic research in the rainwater retention basin of Floating e.V. examines sound and choreographic potential of the place.

With "Hand and Foot", the festival has set out to become more sustainable.
In cooperation with the Hochschule für Nachhaltige Entwicklung Eberswalde (Eberswalde University of Applied Sciences), we have scrutinized the festival with students and are now implementing the impulses from this intensive dialogue. An online workshop by students in the accompanying program provides an insight.

Welcome to the festival!
