Join us at PACT to bid farewell to winter and celebrate the start of spring with a five-day programme of reviving and reinvigorating events. With ›Forest Silent Gathering‹, artist Begüm Erciyas invites a group of spectators to meet inside a forest at sunset and follow a soundtrack through headphones. Reflecting on the bonds between people, forests and histories, the performance creates an audio-social architecture that offers the possibility of being alone and yet together.

On stage, the weekend begins with ›The Very Last Northern White Rhino‹, a choreographic solo investigating different styles of urban dance. Together with the dancer Oulouy, choreographer Gaston Core presents dance as excess, as a celebration derived from life that questions the very possibility of happiness in the face of world chaos. The artist duo Senem Gökçe Oğultekin and Levent Duran (Essen/Hamburg) show a preview of their latest film work ›VOID‹, a performative dialogue with open-cast mining.

Marie-Lena Kaiser shares first impressions of her new group choreography ›In front of the curtain is behind the curtain‹.

Under the maxim ›It's open!‹ the weekend culminates in a relaxed shared meal, featuring seasonal culinary delights as well as performative interventions, followed by a brilliant live closing concert by the Grandbrothers!

All events can be attended combined as well as separately.
