Lucky Trimmer #25 // 2017

14 – 15, April 2017

Sophiensaele, Berlin

For our silver anniversary, ahem, for the 25th edition of the Tanz Performance Serie, a promising compass guides us through new perspectives and unexpected delights on the course of our voyage. From the poetry of movement to the powerhouse of flamenco, we follow the flight of Icarus and ponder the meandering of all or nothing. This year we celebrate the east, the south, the west and the north just in time for the seasons to change
