The SOUN D ANCE festival presents a broad spectrum of performance work from internationally distinguished contemporary dance choreographers and musicians coming from Berlin’s independent scene. Eight performances at the DOCK 11 performance space are dedicated to the real-time interaction between musicians and dancers. The festival has been especially developed for the creation of new performance works, which focus on the dialogue between dance and music—a poetic and dynamic dialogue, 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 the 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.

SOUN D ANCE provides a platform in which a discourse can develop around interdisciplinary collaborations between artists within Berlin’s independent, contemporary dance and music scenes. Moderated discussions following the performances will offer audiences a more profound view into the work of participating artists.
