Production Details / Press Releases

In the Middle-Ages Europe was stricken with a bizarre disease. Without any clear signs the first individuals and then entire masses of people began to fall victim to the excessive dance craze. Fascinated by this phenomenon, the Tanzplage Berlin invites you to choreomanic outbreaks. Beginning with a solo performed by the host of the Tanzplage-Virus, the groups of dancers continue to grow every evening until right after the incubator phase, a concert leads to a collective outburst.
