Jacqueline Fischer, long-standing dancer and choreographer for the Dusseldorf THEATER DER KLAENGE, worked 2015/16 on her second evening programme. After having created the very successful evening of dance entitled “Ich ist ein Anderer” (“I is another“) for the THEATER DER KLÄNGE in 2008, this piece was dedicated to “Contrasts“ the feeling of being free within performance-oriented societies – such as the one in Germany.
Free in the sense of one’s culture or different ethnical origin, free in the sense of “not being able to perform or keep up” because of illness, age or lack of education.
This piece concentrated on the human being, its origin, its environment and is focused on the respective connections and contrasts, in order to unveil its abilites and direct the view onto all that it is able do.
An international cast of performers from Germany, Greece, Chile, the USA, Japan and the Congo have created a music and dance theatre programme on this question which also used video scenography and electronic live music in addition to acting, vocal and dance.
The play was premiered in January 2016 at the Forum Freies Theater – Juta Dusseldorf. We show a recording from January 16th 2016 from this premiere series. Instead of tickets to this online performance we still ask for donations.
