In 1989/90, the year of the fall of the Berlin Wall and communism, it was a squatted factory building; today it’s an international hub for dance and the art of movement: the fabrik Potsdam. The Potsdamer Tanztage are still the calling card of the Brandenburg centre for dance and moving art, which was officially founded in 1991 and combines teaching and a stage repertoire under one roof. On the occasion of the Potsdamer Tanztage’s thirtieth anniversary guest performances from all over the world are planned again this year. Digital, analog and outdoor contributions are targeted from May into December, among others by Eun-Me Ahn from South Korea, Martine Pisani from France and Adi Boutrous from Israel. The range of formats includes offers for families, children and adults, workshops and, as already frequently tested and now suitable for the pandemic, dance interventions in public spaces. The Potsdamer Tanztage will open at the end of May with the streaming of a piece by Thomas Hauert/Zoo; the Zurich-born choreographer and his company were already invited to the festival in 2016 and 2019.
