Two highly contrasting cultures brought face to face with a taboo subject: at the invitation of the Goethe Institutes Inter Nationes, the Scottish dancer and choreographer, Mark Sieczkarek, made the production ›Living with Aids‹ with the Ghanaian dance ensemble ›Dance Factory‹ in Accra. 
With a vibrant young cast of 15 dancers, Sieczkarek approaches the subject of the globally endemic Aids virus in a sensitive and widely accessible manner.
He uses deeply grounded movements and creates moving visual sequences that, accompanied by Ghanaian drumming, seem to suggest strange rituals. Weightlessly, he draws on everyday situations and infers them with sensual and emotionally captivating form.

›Living with Aids‹ is followed on this programme by the Mark Sieczkarek Company in ›Drops of rain in perfect days of June‹ and ›Funky drummer‹.
