summer main event

research or die.



sungrazers / invited artists

b12 brings you companies and guest artists who will present their work here at the festival. we like the idea of exhibiting pieces of theirs, allowing the workshop participants to gain a different perspective on their work and introduce them to berlin audiences. (→ sungrazers)




this new 360 arena style performance format will launch this summer with a riveting remix of johannes wieland's "zentralmassiv". let's spin together! (→ spin)



asteroids / performance projects

this special workshop setting gives dancers the opportunity to have an in-depth experience with one choreographer, working on an idea and presenting it in a performance setting. each performance project is limited to around 12 participants and spans over 13 days. the pieces will be presented three times at dock 11, a black box theater in the center of berlin. (→ asteroids)



critical mass / midnight showings

thought you were just going home to relax after your workshops? think again! on select days we will give you and berlin audiences the opportunity to witness your teachers perform in their own pieces in exclusive late-night studio showings! worlds collide as b12 presents up to three choreographers and their imaginative creative forces in one night. there will be special discussions after some of the critical mass shows, so don't miss out!
