Be Welcome to our autumn events on 6, 7 and 9 October, when the Tanztheater Wuppertal brings Pina Bausch’s legendary choreography »Kontakthof« to Ludwigsburg. The piece was first performed in Wuppertal in 1978. After the low-contact period during the Corona pandemic, the work puts its fingers into many wounds: Encounter, fear, rapprochement, violence, longing, desire, hatred; for the elementary relevance and simultaneous overstraining of interpersonal relationships, our gaze has been particularly sharpened in the last year and a half. The outstanding dance company from Wuppertal confronts us with this timeless work at the Forum am Schlosspark.
In the Kunstzentrum Karlskaserne, the project »Voices from Belarus« gives a voice to the peaceful Belarusian resisters. In performances that are as shocking as they are moving, three conceptual artists together with three musicians and a choir differentiated a picture of Belarusian society on October 3rd. From 5 to 10 October, the performances can be experienced as a freely accessible installation. Admission is free, the maximum number of visitors is 30.
On October 2, the STEGREIF.orchestra immersed the Schillerhöhe Marbach in its characteristic sound. Its project »#bfree«, which could be seen as a cinematic work on our Digital Stage until July 11, has now been performed live in Marbach. Starting with a sound installation at the Schiller Monument, the audience was introduced to the theme of the evening from 6pm: Europe. Inspired by Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, the »European Symphony«, the STEGREIF.orchestra negotiated a European utopia consisting of freedom, abolished borders, closeness and togetherness in a musically performative way.
