… during the last weeks of summer, we brought our project FLUT, a cooperation with the Cologne Opera and the Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra, on the stage with great success –
we thank everyone involved for the wonderful collaboration!
Though it was originally planned for the anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday in 2020, we were not able to premiere it until now, due to Covid. Therefore, it was even more of a pleasure to finally be able to get into contact with you, dear audience, live and in person once again!
Now, autumn is just around the corner and with it new and exciting projects to which we would like to invite you …

ATLAS 3 – Blu Blu Blu
NRW Premiere

Finally, the third part of our ATLAS trilogy, a co-production with Leipzig’s LOFFT, premieres in NRW. In BLU BLU BLU dance, music and Asian martial arts meet dueling, connecting to and mirroring one another. Six protagonists – each a cosmos in itself: body, instrument, machine – are confronted with their (physical) limits and mortality. In the struggle for meaning, they create sound and body images in order to leave traces and lasting impressions.
TanzFaktur Cologne October 15 (8pm) / 16 (8pm, audience discussion afterwards) / 17 (6pm)

Accompanying ATLAS 3, we invite you to visit us on the 9th of October at Ehrenfeldstudios, our production and rehearsal location. First, we offer insights into our work processes during an open rehearsal. Afterwards, there is a chance for us to talk with you about the dance piece in Soavis LIVING ROOM. In addition, we would like to exchange ideas with you about mediated conversation formats: What questions do you have for us? What do you expect of an audience discussion? We would like to collect ideas and suggestions with you in order to incorporate them into the design of future discussions between artists and audience.
