| DiR – Dance in Residence Brandenburg
| Open air performance
The performance consisting of dance, sound and video installation opens up new perspectives on the region of Lusatia. It is intended to be an occasion for a new examination of one's own feelings and thoughts about Lusatia as a homeland, as well as to stimulate reflection on its history and current changes. Folk songs and sounds of Lusatia, newly interpreted by the composer Konrad Jende, will be arranged into soundscapes, while six dancers from the dance company golde g. perform at the same time. Based on the music and in interaction with the choreography, moving images by Alexander Janetzko projected onto the wall of the building accompany the performance.
The performance will take place open air in Potsdam-Schlaatz.
