das gegenteil

to canvass for utopia

Journey through art genres and languages, from the comfort of shiny shelves to the darkest folds of skin and muscles. The work brings on stage butoh dance, artistic and non artistic disciplines, bodies as artworks and artworks as bodies. A reflection of the present for the future darkness to come.



The 4 hours workshop invites participants to encounter the space where fine art and performative arts overlap and question borders between art genres and disciplines, the own body as tool and tools as objects.

Valentin Tzin

Valentin is a Russian artist based in Berlin, DE. A pioneer in bringing rave culture, digital art, butoh (anti)dance and physical theatre together. Dozens of performances and movie appearances, European festivals (Atonal Berlin, CTM, Today’s Art, Athens Biennial) and fashion collaborations (Zaha Hadid, Trippen, Obscur);

as well as collaborative performances and workshops with the key figures of the international butoh scene (Ko Murobushi, Carlotta Ikeda, Dairakudakan company etc.) made him a recognisable figure on contemporary art scene. Known for his passion for going beyond the stylistic and conceptual frameworks, he sees butoh as a kind of virus: mutating, changing its gene, striving on new territories yet to be discovered.

Daniel Williams

Music performance

Daniel Williams, Dresden-based Scottish composer, specialises in score and sound-design for dance and theatre.  Daniel developed his distinctive “embodied” approach to sound art. After demonstrating it in award-winning production “Ketzal” in 2007, Daniel went further into using contemporary technologies to create a real-time interaction, which some describe as taking the sound straight out of the performer’s body.
