April 22 to June 01, 2021
HIER=JETZT: Matteo Carvone

“Sunrise” is an invitation to rebirth, a song for two bodies, one manipulating the other. It is the awareness of the infinite orbiting around us, it is an obsessive repetition of the nature awakening under the long-awaited sunshine.
Round and directional, “Sunrise” is an unstoppable stream of rational and oneiric thoughts.

Am I still asleep?

Life merges with roses in a golden river of pleasure… Eos, Goddess of magnificent beauty, help me to arise from the edge of the ocean.
We all need to wake up from this deep sleep. It’s time for a new dawn, it's time to live again, to love again, to dance again.
... I decided to accept what death means, because accepting death means only that I am accepting life.

Dedicated with immense gratitude to Ismael Ivo, who recently passed away from Covid-19.

Matteo Carvone

Text in the beginning:

„Time is passing at a sped I can’t describe
My skin, my thoughts, everything it’s ageing ... but you are still there holding my hand before I fall
My dreams, or maybe my hopes
Someone said it’s just life stolen from a deep sleep
I will hug you then, I will protect you then
Why now everything looks so hazy ? … I find it so crazy „

The artists-for-artists initiative sets a sign of solidarity with the dance makers of the independent scene also in times of Corona, and invites 14 choreographers to work on their choreographic ideas for two weeks. HIER=JETZT is a laboratory situation in which the choreographers try out their piece approaches in parts or as a work in progress, and present them for discussion under professional conditions (light, sound, stage) in an open space format in mutual exchange. The sharpened aspect of play development is intended to help artists to realize full-length productions. As this platform, like the one in 2020, will unfortunately be a "Corona version", the results of the work approaches will only be available to the public in digital form from April 20.
