The event begins with the speech of the young climate activist Elizabeth Wahuti. Her impressive appeal "Open your hearts and then act" (COP 26) was also the starting point for the content and aesthetic development of the dance theater piece. The work focuses on the cultural and political importance of water at the interface of art and sustainability.
The company around the artistic director Ulrike Düregger consists of five diverse performers with their respective perspectives. With dance, movement, voice and their own texts, they create a poetic-abstract kaleidoscope of water associations. The performers use their bodies to play with objects, with space, with the relationship to one another, and thus create aesthetic translations for social conditions.
Questions of justice and privilege are raised. The dance theater is accompanied by projections that visualize global similarities as well as contradictions through direct juxtaposition.
