Butoh Dance-Performance
(Public spaces near Sommerwerft venue)
(Time: tba)

The butterflies have a strong symbolic meaning. Butterflies are announcers of spring, flying around like fairies, bringing hope and dreams. They announce new life, after the cold winter. The Butterfly performance is above all a peace project. Through the Butterfly Dance, the message of peace, love, and unity beyond generations and continents is conveyed in a unique manner of dance performance.

theatre_international_ondadurto_teatro25_7“C’era una volta” by Ondadurto Teatro
This production is much more than a show about princesses and heroes. Stories and legends coming from the tradition of great authors, from Grimms’ Brothers to Lewis Carroll, from Johann Karl August Musäus to Hans Christian Andersen, are reinterpreted in noir atmosphere and “sweet-and-sour” taste.
The fairy imagination, so sweet and lovely in our memories, will be transformed, and lines between Good and Evil will become deeply evanescent. Is it possible that Little Red Riding Hood has a dark side?

What characterizes a woman in the 21st century?
Five women tell their stories when they act as model, policewoman, porn actress, businesswoman, boxer, midwife and Drag queen.

Buhne1PLAY LOUD by bühne 1 (DE)

A soundtrack of a relationship. A couple torn between positive and negative emotions – traveling from alienation to intimacy.
