Since 2000 Tanznacht Berlin is paying tribute to dance made in Berlin by presenting the artists and their work. The 7th edition continues this biennial tradition, but one single night is not enough: from 22 till 26 August TANZNACHT BERLIN 2012 presents new works and current trends of nearly 75 Berlin based artists.

The festival reaches its peak on the 25 August with an especially full programme of 12 hours of dance. From noon till midnight we present up to 20 different dance performances, premières, installations and one-to-one-performances. Put your own individual programme together and follow us through the festival. Use breaks to attend one of the sommer.talks, take a seat in The Waiting Room or simply relax on the extensive premises of the Uferstudios before visiting the next performance.

This year’s edition of TANZNACHT BERLIN 2012, presented by Tanzfabrik Berlin with its partners Uferstudios, ada Studio & Bühne für zeitgenössischen Tanz, Inter-University Center for Dance Berlin, mapping dance berlin and Tanz im August, focuses on Berlin, its artists and its inhabitants.

With X-Choreografen the festival goes ‘local’ at the Kurfürstendamm, looks back at Berlin’s past in Oral Dance Histories, works with children from Wedding in Ufer/Outside and We are the Monsters, unites hip-hop and contemporary dance in The Battle and poses questions about our relationship to Berlin in Metabolic Metropolis.

Whether you’re a Berliner or a temporary one – we warmly invite you to one or more of the TANZNACHT BERLIN 2012 days and nights.
