Die Kunst des Alleinseins
During the Corona pandemic, everyone probably had their individual experiences with being alone - and perhaps not infrequently found that being alone is a deeply iridescent state that some can enjoy while it causes serious problems for others.
In the second RundfunkchorLounge of the season, we want to approach the multifaceted phenomenon of being alone through a historical figure, namely Emily Dickinson. The US-American poet and writer withdrew from social life into domesticity at an early age and of her own free will. For long periods, writing was her only contact with the outside world. In the music and in the conversations with selected guests, we will take up this thematic strand - and trace it from 19th century America to our present day. The Rundfunkchor Berlin, conducted by Gijs Leenaars and co-directed by Justus Barleben, will provide the music for the theme, and Boussa Thiam will lead the evening.
