Resistance - when do we develop it, what opportunities does it offer? The discussion of resistance is a personal, social and political one, also with regard to the misuse of the term. There are enough current occasions between the pandemic, protests and conflicts that can be observed worldwide to question them.

Along the way, composer Lutz Glandien and choreographer Jiří Bartovanec have encountered, among others, the Resistance, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Georg Floyd.

This collaboration resulted in 2021 in a composition and choreography created especially for this place and space, based on a poem by Mireille Gansel. The work is an artistic research on the concept of resistance and against divisive developments and wants to be both, an encouragement and a call to take an active stand against injustice. It will be performed by dancers from the Czech Republic and Berlin, with music by Johanna Knauth (soprano) and the ensemble unitedberlin under the direction of Erich Wagner.

After the postponement of the premiere due to the pandemic, we are happy to be able to perform the play for the first time in front of a live audience in June 2022.
