TWILIGHT

TWILIGHT
Motoya Kondo, Tiziana Longo (Motimaru Dance Company)
Performance
September 20- 22, 2019 | 20:00
Tickets: 12 € / 8 € (reduced)

Subtle movements change the perception of time and space and create an intimacy that allows us to sink deeply into body and mind. Inner conflicts reveal themselves, countless eons of desire and hatred begin to twist. Can there be a place where duality will fade in the twilight?

The dance performance Twilight was created in the Tibetan refugee area of Nepal. The sound of the morning prayers and rituals from the monasteries, research on the Tibetan monk dance Cham, as well as the conversations with the monks, their philosophy and wisdom, are all incorporated into the body language of the dancers.

Twilight was selected by the AudreyJournal in Sydney as the best performance in June 2018.

MUT

MUT
Tiziana Longo (Motimaru Dance Company)
Performance
September 28 & 29, 2019 | 20:00
Tickets: 12 € / 8 €

The dance solo MUT relates our own lives to the flood of news that reaches us every minute and yet rarely changes us deeply. Instead, the dancers’ body is in a constant metamorphosis, transforming the stories of different women into icons of the contradictory faces of our society. Newspapers come alive, crackle, swell and explode! Based on numerous personal conversations with fugitives from all over the world, MUT sharpens our own critical attitude and creates – layer by layer – a feeling of urgency through the physical interaction with the live music, installations, and audiences.

MUT – the German word for courage, refers in ancient Egyptian to the primordial deity of water, the cosmic mother of all life.

Press commentaries.
„Remarkable is the aesthetics of dance, because it is as diverse as the women who are the focus of this work. „ (Tanzraum Berlin)

“Mut touches a nerve” (suzygoessee, Sydney Theatre Reviews, Juni 2018)

The Mark on the Wall
Virginia Woolf | Stepha Schweiger – Anna Clementi – Sebastian Bauer
Music Theatre
October 4 & 5, 2019 | 20:00
Tickets: 15 € | 10 € (reduced)
delphi.reservix.de

Our gaze is drawn to a stain, which makes the mind spin – sensually and intellectually. Split into 3 roles – singer, dancer and speaker – the protagonist embarks on a phantasmal journey between imagination and reality.

Stepha Schweiger has set to music the short story of Virginia Woolf, staged by Sebastian Bauer. The score is specially designed by her for the voice of the German-Italian-Swedish vocal artist, actress and performer Anna Clementi. Performance, spoken theatre, dance, electronic music, new music, pop/free jazz and experimental music transform Woolf’s stream of consciousness into an expressive experience.
Stepha Schweiger has composed a rather minimalistic sound band, dazzling and with fine tensions from the specific transformation of Woolf’s text flow.

Press reviews:
»Stepha Schweiger has composed a web of sounds more minimalistic in effect, one that emerges in a shimmer and with fine-spun tensions from her unique transformation of Virginia Woolf’s textual flow.« nmz – Neue Musikzeitung, Hans-Peter Graf
»Music between upheaval and a retro effect, between evident delight in experimentation and a classic trim. … Schweiger enhances the suspensive tension of sensually tender sound clusters to a melodiousness almost reminiscent of the free jazz experiments in the 1970s, one that lures us with its irresistible groove.« Augsburger Allgemeine, Florian L. Arnold
»It is the composition that actually provides the elementary lifesoil for this stream of thoughts, as it flows through primeval depths and naturalism along the crumbling edges of a society in a state of change. Stepha Schweiger permits the ensemble to breathe, sense and soar, to become consummate in space.« Süd-West-Presse, Udo Eberl

The lautten compagney is one of the most renowned and creative German baroque ensembles. For three decades, the concerts under the artistic direction of Wolfgang Katschner have fascinated their audiences. The :lounge sessions focus on the pleasure of making music spontaneously. In various crossover programs the loud compagney has already shown that a combination of old music with modern means of expression (dance, video installations etc.) can be very rewarding.

LOVE
Petar Miloshevski
Theatre, Performance Art, Pantomime, Modern Dance | German Premiere
October 11-13, 2019 | 20:00
Tickets: 15 € | 10 € (reduced)

Inspired by the story of the cannibal of Rotenburg, the solo piece LOVE tells of the intimate encounter of two people who decide to experience what they consider to be the most wonderful sexual ecstasy and expression of intimate love. Completely free of special effects, video or gore elements. Instead, in a visually intense and strongly physical symbiosis between theatre, performance art, language, pantomime and modern dance, the London actor and theatre maker Petar Miloshevski examines which hidden dimensions of the human psyche stand behind such a disturbing act and takes the audience on a rollercoaster ride of conflicting emotions.

LOVE has been performed on various festivals in London, Bath, Paris, Yerevan and North Macedonia, as well as International Theatre Festival BABEL in Targoviste, Romania, where it won the Best Actor Award.

Press quotes:

“So singular in its mode of expression that it takes time for your eyes and ears to become accustomed, and has an atmosphere that could give you the bends.”
Exeunt Magazine, London

“Miloshevski produces barrels of wonderment from unspeakable human tragedy.”
Younger Theatre, London

“Champion of solo works which pull and twist the human soul in all directions… it plunges us into the abyss of an indisputable madness.”
Apartés, Paris

“A lesson of discovery, of confronting truths, an acting lesson…what Petar Miloshevski did was a sacrifice towards the spectators that watched him with astonished eyes.”
Foaier Buletin, Romania

Eartha´s Guide to Everyday Living

Eartha´s Guide to Everyday Living

Eartha´s Guide to Everyday Living
N.E.W. + Guests

Space-Sound-Image-Installation | Berlin Premiere
October, 18 & 19, 2019 | 20:00
Tickets: 13 € | 8 € (ermäßigt)

Eartha’s Guide to Everyday Living is a tribute to the singer, actress and entertainer Eartha Kitt. Eartha Kitt was a dazzling star of the American jazz, pop and media world and is known as Catwoman from the 1960s TV series “Batman”. As a representative of female and Afro-American self-confidence, she was confronted with sexist, racist and political resentments.
N.E.W. and her guests are inspired by Eartha Kitt in her role as a superhero to create a space-sound-image performance. The cartoon-like, shrill aesthetics of the TV series stand in stark contrast to the abstract sound language of N.E.W. – a powerful sound emerges from this tension: driven by the cinematic speed, the electroacoustic sound images of N.E.W. are superimposed with beator-oriented structures and enriched with light and video projections.

Eartha’s Guide to Everyday Living will be premiered at the Ruhrtriennale in September 2019.

N.E.W. emerged from the Composer Performer Ensemble Les Femmes Savantes founded in 2005. In the spectrum of new music, jazz, electronics, improvisation, sound art and performance, each musician of the trio develops her own artistic language in singular as well as collective authorship. For Eartha’s Guide to Everyday Living N.E.W are working for the first time with sound artist and composer Kaffe Matthews, visual artist Katharina Ernst and media artist Tina Wilke.

Musicians*inside N.E.W. + Guests | Composition, Trumpet, Electronik Sabine Ercklentz | Composition, Interior Piano, Mixer Andrea Neumann | Composition, Voice, Objects, Electronik Ute Wassermann | Composition, Electronics Kaffe Matthews (Guest) | Percussion Katharina Ernst (Guest) | Video Tina Wilke (Guest)

A production by N. E. W. in cooperation with the Rurtriennale. Supported by Hauptstadtkulturfonds.

Press commentaries:
“Their performance is a peak of voices.” (taz.die Tageszeitung)

“Four female voices, nothing else. And yet much more. (…) Each of the ladies proves amazing versatility: the range of sound extends from slender girl’s soprano to groovy jazz tube to smoky soul singer. (Leipzig People’s Newspaper)

A concert by niniwe is song for song the essence of what Mother Nature has conceded mankind in terms of vocal expressiveness and sensibility. (O-Ton Vocal Days, Salzburg)
