Stephanie Thiersch / Brigitta Muntendorf

ARCHIPELAGO – A Spectacle of Blending

Duration 90 min

After the end of the world as we know it, a neo­humanoid presence will emerge and explore biological symbioses and rituals of collective coexistence. Inspired by this vision, choreographer Stephanie Thiersch and composer Brigitta Muntendorf bring architecture, dance and music into a new alliance. With Japanese architect Sou Fuji­ moto’s sculpture acting as a stage, a landscape, a shelter and a musical instrument, dancers and musicians elicit and develop its sounds. Moving between utopia and realism, “ARCHIPELAGO” speaks of a species in search of togetherness.
