Leonardo Moreira / Cia. Hiato, São Paulo

Frankfurt LAB


Odisseia

What stories do we tell and why? Who do we become when someone is speaking about us? In a mixture of interactive experiment and play, Leonardo Moreira and his company Hiato delve into grand narratives and timeless contexts, concealed behind the daily and banal, the modern and ostensibly private of our life experiences. The company previously visited Frankfurt before with two extraordinary productions: at Mousonturm with the marathon “Ficções” (Fictions) and before that at the Frankfurt LAB with “O Jardim” (The Garden). Their new piece “Odisseia” is likewise above all based on the experiences, dreams and doubts of the seven performers, who have strangely, as well as quite naturally assimilated characters from Homer’s “Odyssey”. They invite us to a four-hour feast, in which they simply celebrate the continued mythical quality of our world. And after a roller coaster of strong emotions – grief, anger, love – in the end, we ask ourselves: what ghosts are still lingering here with us? Which dreams have disappeared from our lives? Which battles we have fought? And where can we never return to?

Ali Moini / Company Selon l’Heure

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


Man anam ke rostam bovad pahlavan (Ich verdanke Rostam meinen Ruhm)

Ali Moini, dancer and choreographer with Iranian roots, is connected on stage to a life-size marionette, a kind of robot. Each of his movements is passed on to his counterpart via hundreds of rope pulleys. But who is controlling whom? Who is subject, who object? When does the machine become human and the human artificial? Moini has to perform a very strange dance to properly control the impressive puppet, whose immense presence is both fascinating and almost mesmerizing. The interaction with the doppelgaenger explores the complexity of human nature, the intricate connections between life and death. The title of this unusual, magnificent human-machine-duet cites an Iranian proverb, according to which we owe our own successes to our ability to imitate other talented people.

Lisbeth Gruwez / Voetvolk

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


It’s going to get worse and worse and worse, my friend

The apocalyptic title of the work by exceptional performer Lisbeth Gruwez and her group Voetvolk promises nothing good. In fact, Gruwez has now dared to tackle a delicate topic: the manipulative element of speech that many, from revolutionary leaders to television preachers, have already taken advantage of. From the very beginning, the small androgynous appearance has controlled the stage and attracted all attention. Gruwez's level of energy is visibly increased by ever faster, reduced movements and gestures. Her interaction with the music that drives her is also impressive: the sound as well as the recorded sentences of the American TV evangelist Jimmy Swaggart are literally absorbed by her body. Words and content fade from the overwhelming fascination of the trance-like mood the dancer is in.

Philippe Quesne / Crash Park – La vie d’une île

Frankfurt LAB


Philippe Quesne creates landscapes and habitats for his pieces within theatre
spaces. The set designs come first, the micro-worlds and biotopes: a cultural
centre in a swamp, a molehill housing a band, a ratty amusement park. For his next
theatre adventure, the French artist and his wonderful, heart-warmingly bizarre
collaborators (most recently at Mousonturm with “Welcome to Caveland”) explore life on a lonely island with a crash-landed airplane and a marauding group of survivors. Quesne has dreamed up a musical adventure show with a large airplane wreck on the beach, a fire-spewing volcano in the middle, a revolving stage amidst an ocean of possibilities and surprises. “Crash Park” premieres in November 2018 at Quesne’s own Théâtre des Amandiers-Nanterre and then comes to Frankfurt in June 2019.

Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird

Palmengarten


Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird, the international Klezmer band led by the Detroit-born musician, releases its albums on the prestigious Berlin record label Oriente Musik. Political ballads penned by Kahn himself oscillate fearlessly between revolution and alienation, original songs of his own and musical renditions of poems and songs by Jewish authors, Bertolt Brecht, Heinrich Heine and Kurt Tucholsky, which he pays tribute to and in doing so rounds off the group’s diverse repertoire. While also drawing on Klezmer tradition, the group confidently and playfully combines the past with punk, folk and a quality of singer-songwriting that is as idiosyncratic balladic as that of Tom Waits. A rousing trip, featuring Yiddish folk songs, political cabaret, dance music and punk – beautiful and wild!

Lou Doillon

Palmengarten


Lou Doillon, fashion icon, model, artist, daughter of famous parents (Jane Birkin and Jacques Doillon) and since the beginning of the decade – shooting straight into the French Top 3 – is also a successful musician. In early February 2019, she released her third album under the quiet title of “Soliloquy”, containing a wide and diverse range of references: soul, trip-hop and reggae rhythms, which Doillon – who lived in the Caribbean for a while as a child – feels connected to, although she later mainly grew up with groups such as Massive Attack and Les Rita Mitsuko. While her love still steadfastly and audibly burns for Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison and Nick Drake, she has joined forces with exciting producers and Cat Power, who supports her on the album on the track “It’s You”. All this and more promises to be a cool concert under summery skies at the Palmengarten.

Irma

Palmengarten


The songs of French soul-pop sensation Irma give authentic insight into the nature of this shy musician and her gentle voice with its almost magical live aura. Her first inspirations most likely came from her parents’ record collection, featuring e.g. Eric Clapton’s “Change The World” or Ben Harpers “Live on Mars”. Be that as it may, it was with these cover versions that she gained speedy popularity on YouTube, first in France and soon beyond. Skilfully she combines pop, (neo)soul, R&B and a pinch of funk with a dose of unique bitter-sweetness. A mixture, which so thoroughly convinced ZAZ and Bob Dylan that they invited her to join them on tour as their supporting act.

Wolf & Moon, Dutch Stefanie and Dennis, are a great supporting act for Irma’s music: in their own words, they describe themselves as a travelling dream-folk duo, who love being on the road and tell tales about it in harmonious, sparkling songs. Accompanied by a guitar, acoustic bass and analogue synthesizer pads, they begin the evening with a sense of youth and everything that one encounters when young.

Get Well Soon Big Band

Palmengarten


Most people fear nightmares. Konstantin Gropper says he looks forward to them. Inspired by the 1950’s sound of Sinatra, he released his fifth album “The Horror” together with Get Well Soon in June 2018. This new album, which delves deeply into dark and disturbing things, created by the classically trained multi-instrumentalist and singer, or better said: crooner, who also composes film music, is an orchestral album about fear. For currently, fear seems to rule the world and cannot be ignored. At first, Gropper warmly engulfs his listeners, letting them then abruptly tumble into the depths, only to re-embrace them again with symphonic harmonies and grand gestures, as if to say: No one is alone!

Nightmares On Wax

Palmengarten


One of the greatest icons produced by the label Warp Records over the last 25 years has returned: electronica pioneer George Evelyn aka Nightmares on Wax. His name still stands apart in electronic music history and never has his unique mixture of hip-hop and soul, of dub and club sounded quite as smooth and convincing as on his new album “Shape The Future”. At the same time, it is also much richer in sound, for Evelyn has called on fascinating musicians to join him, as well as banked on rich orchestration and haunting hip-hop suffused with gospel. The history of the American South rings out in this music, but, as the title suggests, shaping a better future may prove to be the greatest challenge.

Grandbrothers

Palmengarten


With rods, straps, cables, microphones and electromechanical hammers attached to their prepared grand piano, the Grandbrothers Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel create exciting contemporary piano music inspired by such experimental forefathers of the genre as John Cage and Steve Reich, just to name a few, as well as by newer electronic music. When Vogel adds effects and samples live to the sounds Sarp draws from the piano – when the hammers hit the strings and the wooden corpus and the mechanics therein in supplementary rhythms – the result is a technically, as well as visually astonishing interplay of inside and outside. As complicated as it may sound, this great mix of analogue and digital promises to be an ambitious, yet nevertheless chill listening experience carried along by cool rhythmic harmonies.
