Seek Bromance is a trans romance situated at the end of the world somewhere between insta-reality and sci-fi dystopia. It shows a relationship between two transmasculines who met during the beginning of the pandemic, who both have a history of performing extremely feminine characters but who have very different attitudes as to what masculinity can be.

โ€œI set out to edit a work that I needed to see while struggling with my gender. A trans work where itโ€™s not about educating cis people, or justifying our existence or being shiny positive examples, but a real story, where the trans protagonists are complex and troubled, progressive and admirable, problematic and relatable. Where they are rebels, lovers and creators.โ€ -Samira Elagoz

AYUR is the second piece of Radouan Mriziga's trilogy centred around the knowledge of the Imazighen people of North Africa. Inspired by the ancient Carthegean moon goddess Tanit, โ€œAyurโ€ is a solo created for Tunisian choreographer and performer Sondos Belhassen. A female guardian of longlost wisdom, she passes in and out of a porous dome, speaking words by poet Lilia Ben Romdhane and rapper Mahdi Chammen. In a silvershaded interweaving of dance, text and architecture, she summons the past while searching for a more inclusive future.

Can you use choreography to fill in the gaps in our historical memory? In Akal, the final part of his latest trilogy, Radouan Mriziga once again focuses on the knowledge of the Imazighen, the indigenous people of North Africa. Their oral culture was left unrecognised for centuries, but for Mriziga it is a source of inspiration for the future. Each part of the trilogy is a solo for a dancer and revolves around a mythological female figure who in her own way embodies and passes on the knowledge of Amazigh culture.

In Akal, (Earth in Tamazight) the ancient Egyptian goddess Neith, who guides the souls of the dead to the underworld, is central. For this solo, Mriziga has invited the Rwandan dancer, singer and choreographer Dorothรฉe Munyaneza. In an intimate setting, you will be treated to a mix of rituals, traditional dance, architecture, storytelling, singing, poetry and rap.

In TANK by the Austrian choreographer Doris Uhlich, the audience embarks on a captivating, almost cinematic exploration of the body as a field of experimentation. A large glass box stands in the center of the stage, evoking images of familiar science fiction motifs. A place of study and testing of body transformations, resistances and technological promises of happiness.

What is our first memory of dancing? Two years ago, the Japanese choreographer and performance artist Ayaka Nakama asked people she knew well to describe their first memories of their actual selves dancing. Based on these accounts, she has used her own body to reconstruct the movements they described. This forms the starting point for โ€œFreeway Danceโ€. Ayaka Nakama welcomes us within a garden installation, that invites visitors to linger while its numerous organisms and references undermine the notion of a monoculture.

The four-hour performance โ€œFreeway Danceโ€ at The Sun Machine Is Coming Down - Kunst im ICC will be performed on seven of the ten days whereas the idyllic garden and its swing are open to visitors throughout the day. On entry to the garden, visitors will be given headsets to augment their aural experience of the installation. Enhanced by sound projections through additional loudspeakers on the gallery level above the foyer, โ€œFreeway Danceโ€ presents a range of perspectives on a place of wonder, where people, memories, and cultures meet.

This project in Berlin is funded by Inga Maren Otto.

It shows a relationship between two transmasculines who met during the beginning of the pandemic, who both have a history of performing extremely feminine characters but who have very different attitudes as to what masculinity can be. โ€œI set out to edit a work that I needed to see while struggling with my gender. A trans work where itโ€™s not about educating cis people, or justifying our existence or being shiny positive examples, but a real story, where the trans protagonists are complex and troubled, progressive and admirable, problematic and relatable. Where they are rebels, lovers and creators.โ€ -Samira Elagoz ๐Ÿ“ธ Samira Elagoz

AYUR by Radouan Mriziga 29 and 30 January 2022, Alserkal Avenue, DUBAI (AE) as part of Quoz Arts Fest Info & tickets: https://bit.ly/3KOd4nJ AYUR is the second piece of Radouan Mriziga's trilogy centred around the knowledge of the Imazighen people of North Africa. Inspired by the ancient Carthegean moon goddess Tanit, โ€œAyurโ€ is a solo created for Tunisian choreographer and performer Sondos Belhassen. A female guardian of longlost wisdom, she passes in and out of a porous dome, speaking words by poet Lilia Ben Romdhane and rapper Mahdi Chammen. In a silvershaded interweaving of dance, text and architecture, she summons the past while searching for a more inclusive future. ๐Ÿ“ธ Ayur ยฉ Dajana Lothert, 2021.

In Akal, the final part of his latest trilogy, Radouan Mriziga once again focuses on the knowledge of the Imazighen, the indigenous people of North Africa. Their oral culture was left unrecognised for centuries, but for Mriziga it is a source of inspiration for the future. Each part of the trilogy is a solo for a dancer and revolves around a mythological female figure who in her own way embodies and passes on the knowledge of Amazigh culture. In Akal, (Earth in Tamazight) the ancient Egyptian goddess Neith, who guides the souls of the dead to the underworld, is central. For this solo, Mriziga has invited the Rwandan dancer, singer and choreographer Dorothรฉe Munyaneza. In an intimate setting, you will be treated to a mix of rituals, traditional dance, architecture, storytelling, singing, poetry and rap. ๐Ÿ“ธ ยฉ NASA, Kyle Johnson, Bea Borgers
If you wonder why we have been silent on social media there is a good reason for it. We are happy to inform that in Summer 2022, Something Great will open a new house for international contemporary performing arts in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany - a home for independent artists from Germany, Europe and beyond. Located in Marnitz, the main village of Ruhner Berge, a rural area that lies on either side of the border between the German states of Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, this new arts centre will be housed in three buildings of a former elementary school of 1902 with over 2500 square meters of space. It will be, first and foremost, a centre for artistic residencies open to artists from around the world, offering space for concentrated working processes and facilitating exchanges between artists, academics and wide-ranging audiences. More information soon. A project by Something Great supported by Diehl + Ritter / Tanzpakt Reconnect funded by the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media within the frame of the program Neustart Kultur.
