RESISDANCE - Awakening in sound
Click here to see the trailer -> Trailer RESISTANZ
Resistance - when do we develop it? What chances does it offer us? The debate concerning resistance is a personal, social and political one, especially when one considers the misuse of the term. There are enough occurrences at the moment, what with the pandemic and the mass protests worldwide, to give us reason to examine them more closely.
This situation lead composer Lutz Glandien and choreographer Jiří Bartovanec to rediscover resistance, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and George Floyd.
Through their cooperation, a composition and choreography was developed especially for this space, based on a poem by Mireille Gansel. The work is an artistic enquiry about the concept of resistance to divisive developments and at the same time an attempt to encourage action against injustice. It is performed by dancers from Czechia and Berlin, with the musicians Julia Giebel (soprano) and ensemble unitedberlin under the direction of Erich Wagner.
