Ruhrtriennale performance
›Dienstbare Geister‹ (“subservient spirits”) tells of two migratory journeys in opposite directions. In 1905 an impoverished young woman leaves Berlin and emigrates to the German colony of Cameroon. Her social advancement is achieved at the expense of her native neighbours and servants who are engaged in stubborn but futile resistance against the Germans.

Dance / As part of Ruhrtriennale
In his latest production ›CAEN AMOUR‹, New York choreographer Trajal Harrell prompts a sensuous encounter between the legendary dance and Art Nouveau icon, Loïe Fuller and the founder of the dance performance art Butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata. Swathed in flowing garments and inspired by Oriental concepts, Fuller’s dancing was simultaneously avant-garde and Vaudeville in nature and posthumously hailed as modern dance.
