Dieudonné Niangouna / Compagnie Les Bruits de la Rue

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


Trust/Shakespeare/Alléluia

As a writer, actor and director, Dieudonné Niangouna is a central figure in the African continent’s young generation of theatre makers. His  linguistically powerful plays are now premiering at places such as the Avignon Festival or the Berliner Ensemble. “Trust/Shakespeare/Alléluia”
revolves around a group of young performers and their conviction that it is possible to invent a better future in theatre. Freely navigating between documentation and fiction it tells this group’s tale, inspired by their relationship to theatre and to what it can report about violence in the world – in all urgency, in a form both highly poetic and playful. For Niangouna, Shakespeare provides a space between forced reality and subjective poetry, which turns his new piece into the reflection of a young generation caught up in the turbulences of contemporary history.

Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol / Tijuana

Studio 1, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


“Tijuana” is the result of an experiment by Mexican author, director and actor Gabino Rodríguez. For six months, he gave up his usual life and lived in Tijuana as a factory worker. For this, he assumed a new identity, severed all contacts to his old environment and exclusively relied on the statutory minimum wage earned at the factory. The trained actor effortlessly slipped into the role, but very soon he began to question his position as a poverty tourist. Is he allowed to lie to his newly found friends for art’s sake? “Tijuana” is the newest project by the Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol Collective, which explores the boundaries between documentation and fiction in various theatrical forms. The piece is the first part of a larger planned political and social panorama entitled “La democracia en México (1965-2015)” covering 32 parts – one for every Mexican city.

Lisbeth Gruwez / AH/HA

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


Baring your teeth, your diaphragm twitching, a tremor driving you to tears: in its appropriation of the whole body, laughter borders on the violent. In “AH | HA”, choreographer and dancer Lisbeth Gruwez dissects this involuntary reflex and breaks it down into its component movements. Assembled into a ravelike, monotonous delirium, Gruwez, whose diverse work is the focus of this year’s Tanzfestival Rhein-Main, creates a choreographic trip, an exploration of ecstasy. “AH | HA” is an estranging abstraction for five bizarrely dressed characters, which float from one state to the next, almost without volition. “AH | HA” is a behavioral study of human affects – anarchy defined by absolute control – scored to a suggestive soundtrack by composer Maarten Van Cauwenberghe. “AH | HA” is the first group piece by the Belgian collective Voetvolk, which was founded in 2007 by the choreographer and dancer Lisbeth Gruwez and the composer and musician Maarten Van Cauwenberghe.

Cyril Baldy / Variation(s) for A Few

Frankfurt LAB, Schmidtstraße 12 (Gallus)


How do we organize ourselves in social space? With his quartet Variation(s) for A Few, the Frankfurt artist Cyril Baldy develops a micro-model for living together. As a classically trained dancer who danced for many years in famous companies such as The Forsythe Company, he stringently directs his attention to the choreographic fundamental categories of body, time and space. For four extraordinary dancers he develops individual solos that are danced in parallel and are based on the same sets of directions. Similar to a musical counterpoint, they are independent of one another and simultaneously permanently related. In this complex weave, the dancers make instantaneous decisions and create an efficient economy that is relieved of codifications and determinations in dance without losing precision and virtuosity; in the process, they formulate an alternative form of togetherness for bodies in time and space.

Sat 09.11.2019 -  7.30 p.m.

Tümay Kılınçel / Dansöz

Studio 1, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


If the Orient – according the cultural scientist and pioneer of post-colonialism Edward Said – is a European invention, then shouldn’t all oriental dances, often just called belly dancing, also be considered as a part of European dance history? Why does contemporary dance, which usually implies openness and a diversity of expression, exclude certain forms of dance, in this case belly dancing? In her new solo, Frankfurt-based choreographer Tümay Kılınçel turns existing perspectives around and integrates Oriental dances into the genealogy of the contemporary. How can the exotifying body image of women in belly dance be emancipated socially and thus turn into a means of empowerment? How can Kılınçel as an artist use this body practice without being placed into a prefabricated box?

andcompany&Co. / 1998: The GREAT DISINTEGRATION

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


1989: All of Phantásia is under threat! Greater and greater parts are disappearing without a trace, not even a teeny tiny hole: NOTHING. Yet this nothing exerts tremendous attraction. Many flee from it, but some plunge in headfirst – only to reappear on the other side as a lie, obsession, fake news… With the help of the Will-o’-the-Wisp (Luise Meier, “MRX Maschine”), and the Racing Snail (Karsten Krampitz, “Wasserstand und Tauchtiefe”) andcompany&Co. will reactivate disintegration and redirect the dissolving energies, until the old lies become new stories and fantastic narratives: “People don’t allow anyone to say anything to them, but you can tell them anything.” (Walter Benjamin)
