Berlin Diagonale at 2015 Tanz im August
Berlin Diagonale kicks off the new season of dance, theater and performance with Tanz im August right after the end of the summer break! This year as well, Berlin’s largest festival for contemporary dance will attract guests and visiting industry professionals from around the world. At Berlin Diagonale, an overview of current work, exchanges and the opportunity to network with Berlin’s independent performing arts community awaits you.
Things start off at 3:00 pm with the presentation of short excerpts from the performances that will be presented in full on the same evening at Dock 11. After this, more than 20 Berlin-based dance and performance makers will present their working methods and productions in a trade fair format. Armed with iPads and laptops, costumes and props, rickshaws, inflatable stage elements, a variety of installations and, of course, their own bodies, each artist (collective) will occupy four square meters of Dock 11 on Kastanienallee for two hours.
The open trade fair format allows an overview of Berlin’s independent dance community to be obtained in a very short time and provides the opportunity to speak directly with the artists. Starting at 5:00 pm, these conversations can be continued at the bar located in Dock 11’s picturesque courtyard.

We would also like to inform you of the event Étape danse which takes place on August 28, 2015 at 11:00 am – a very worthwhile supplement to your insight into the independent dance communities of Berlin and Potsdam. www.fabrikpotsdam.de
