SOUN D DANCE Festival presents a broad spectrum of performance work from internationally distinguished contemporary dancer-choreographers and musicians from Berlin’s independent arts scene. Eight performances at the DOCK 11 theatre stage are dedicated to the real-time interaction between musicians and dancers. The festival showcases newly developed performances, which focus on the poetic and dynamic dialogue between dance and music – one rich with accidental possibilities.
Ranging from duets with a one-to-one dialogue between dancer and musician, to larger group pieces with 6 dancers and one musician on stage: the program brings light to the diverse potentials of sound and movement in collaboration with one another. Whether experimental, grotesque, sensual, choreographed or improvised, a touching exchange unfolds between performer, instrument and space; the boundaries between music and dance disintegrate.
The festival’s afternoon Atelier Sessions give people the chance to interact and exchange directly with festival artists. There will be workshops for dancers and performers, as well as artist talkbacks following the performances.
The SOUN D ANCE Festival, which developed out of the Improvisation XChange Berlin Festival (2013-16), continues in the tradition of creating a collaborative platform, as well as a potential network for exchange, between dancers and musicians within the independent arts scene. The festival financially supports participating artists and artistic groups in the continued development of their work, via an intensive week of rehearsals.
