WE’RE GIVING AWAY A PAIR OF TICKETS TO BIG DANCE THEATER’S PERFORMANCE OF 17C ON AUGUST 26

The New York-based company’s new performance “17c” rips open Samuel Pepys’s diaries, in which this 17th-century man meticulously notes his daily doings – from his infidelities, and perversions, to his dancing lessons and binge-shopping sprees.

To be in with a chance of winning, email your name and the headline “Big Dance Theater” to ticketgiveaway@kcrwberlin.org. Winners will be drawn at 5pm on August 24.  

 

Check out the full program for this year’s Tanz im August, and stay tuned for photo and video coverage on our social media channels, interviews, program previews and other special broadcasts of Tanz im August events!
