Garage Tanz

Garage is a space that offers possibilities to research, rehearse, create, produce and present work in the fields of dance and performing arts. It invites people to go outside of traditional dance districts in Berlin looking for proximity to other fields such as visual arts, film and sound production.

We encourage cross linked structures, diversity, reflection, exchange and collaboration. Garage is a place where practitioners, including performers, dancers, choreographers, lighting sound and stage designers, dramatists and visual artists can commit to looking for new ways of collaborating and creating.

15 Minutes series and upcoming event “15 minutes: garage and friends”

The instant choreography series „15 Minutes” is thought to be a cosy event for performers to get to know each other and exchange with the audience their personal understanding of the idea of instant choreography within a 15 minutes improvisation.

Each participant can decide what topic, tool or format to use: no further curatorial frame is given besides indeed the time frame.

In this way practitioners coming from different disciplines can open up their process or simply explore tools or improvisation-strategies in front of an audience in a relaxed and playful way.

The event is hosted by the newly opened collective space GARAGE in Lichtenberg, inside the Fahrbereitschaft compound and will be held every second month.

The artists will be invited to exchange and warm up in the space three hours prior to the event and can decide on the spot how they want to present their performance, possibly choosing spontaneously for a duet, a solo, or a group improvisation as well as deciding for the evening schedule with the other participants. A basic light setting and sound-system is available.

The first of this event-series will be 15th March. Starting at 20:00 in GARAGE involving members of the collective GARAGE and Guests: among others Maria Walser, Dave Hall, Heini Nukari.

Duration of the event, approximately 1½ hour including a break. Entrance fee 5 euros.
