NAH DRAN is a performance series for Berlin based emerging choreographers. It provides an opportunity to present new pieces, finished or in process. The format assembles 3 pieces by different young artists in one performance evening. NAH DRAN (“close to”) means that there is literally no gap between performers and audience, which offers an intimate setting for sharing the work.
NAH DRAN extended means that the works were selected under a specific curatorial aspect. This edition - “Looking After”, curated by Roni Katz and Maya Weinberg - presents three works that deal with inevitable transformations. How to disentangle softly? How does death shape us? What is the quality of the maternal? All three works confront raw and intense passages of life, or moments one cannot be prepared for, and investigate how to face them through networks of care and support.


Hassan Dib: Are We Dead Yet? („Sind wir schon tot?“)
In Are We Dead Yet? Hassan Dib wants to explore death by looking at its meaning and importance in their personal life, their migration and family history, their memories of death of loved ones and the deaths that helped them to transition into their queer identity.
Being queer requires to let things die, things that were handed down for generations that no longer serve us. These deaths are what allows us to live and simultaneously what puts our lives in danger. The subject of death has always been present in Hassan’s previous work. Are We Dead Yet? is a reflection on how death has been present in their life, how it has traumatized them and how it still terrifies them.
Death has a tendency to show up uninvited. It catches us off guard through viral videos or devastating phone calls, it forces us to the streets in protest. It shows up in our work simply because we can’t avoid it. In this piece Hassan wants to give themselves a chance to face the topic of death on their own terms, they would like to invite death in and evoke questions like: Why do we fear death, and what happens to us when we accept it? What deaths have shaped us?

Sunayana Shetty & Katerina Delakoura: mother tongue
mother tongue is a work where we call out to our maternal bodies. The work examines different practices that invite the body to feel beyond the possessive skin bound body and open to be in a relational kin-bound body. While building an intuitive relation with what the body carries, we work with tracing our memories and finding our deep songs. One after the other following through the many waves, we are mothering and raising our inner processes. In mother tongue we are crafting networks of care, unfolding them through dances that celebrate the energy of the maternal.

Makisig Akin: Give me your Heart, no, the real one.
This is a love centered survival practice. The work is developed in the midst of grieving the loss we have been experiencing born from the pandemic and this forced distance we had and the extreme closeness that put a crack into the structures we thought were working but were not. Grieving is a communal act. How can our differences support our togetherness? We practice breaking softly, with care and with a particular attention to the preciousness of what has occurred here and honoring that? Let’s bring love in the way we break. Let’s break softly together.
