Polski Teatr Tańca from Poznań (Poland) and bodytalk from Münster (Germany) question with regard to recent social upheavals and distortions: What does this mean to all of us?
In August 1980, the polish summer of love began. The kids could hardly wait to awake from their sleep, which let them impatiently dream of building ships together as a crane driver or electrician in later times to sail into freedom. Did they arrive in the middle of today‘s Europe at the Pole of Coldness?
The next day, the poets – also the good ones – will weep. They will harder than ever before tumble into a full muteness, then the language will be without this word and will have been without this word … solidarnoc?
Solidaritot | Solidar-noc is the second coproduction of bodytalk and Polish Dancetheatre after JE-WROPE which was honoured the Cologne Dancetheatre-Award (Kölner Tanztheaterpreis) in 2014.
The piece moves thirteen dancers supported by two musicians on the question, what solidarity is all about. Yesterday and today. In Poland, in Germany and in between.
Supported by the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia, City of Münster and iDAS NRW
