With Fous de danse – All Berlin Dances at Tempelhof, the Volksbühne and the Musée de la danse is launching its new season under the open skies.

From 12 noon until 10pm the airfield will be transformed into a spectacular dance stage: warm-up, social dance circles, participatory choreographies, ensemble scenes, a massive soul train, traditional dances, a moving labyrinth of solo dancers and a dancefloor appear in succession, moving to a wild rhythm. Fous de danse is driven by the desire of to create an ephemeral dancing community, to fill the mineral surface of Tempelhof’s airfield with bodies and various states, to invent a choreographic form that transforms over time and to invite the public to take part in this metamorphosis of the space and the gestures populating it. For the past two decades, the internationally renowned French dancer and choreographer Boris Charmatz has been one of the most radical protagonists of contemporary dance. Fous de danse is the prelude to a 14-day journey, in which Charmatz and his dancers confront us with the imposing architecture of the Tempelhof site, with light and darkness. Both children and adults, whether local Berliners and newcomers: everyone can be a dancer in this unique experiment. It is an invitation to a city, to perform itself.

Production: Volksbühne Berlin. Co-produktion: Musée de la danse / Centre chorégraphique national de Rennes et de Bretagne – Boris Charmatz. The association receives grants from the Ministry of Culture and Communication, the city of Rennes, the regional council of Brittany and the commune of Ille-et-Vilaine. The Institut Français regularly supports the international tours of Musée de la danse.

"I believe that in future it will be down to us and our courage, to invent new forms of public, organised assembly and to bring us – quite literally – back into movement: Choreographic, democratic or ecstatic." Boris Charmatz
