Media Dance Performance  - 30 min. - Multichannel Composition
IN MEMORY OF HANNELORE SCHULTE
An illuminated 20 m ramp starts inside the building, in front of the glass wall with a huge projection and goes up to the end of the big balcony, that is towering above the city. During the 30 min. performance, the dancer moves from down the ramp up to its end towards the night sky, like walking the path of life with all its ups and downs, repetitions and impassibilities. Always present, the crows gathering together in the trees, symbols linked to the topic of death through history and cultures.
The location is part of the Museum of sepulcral culture*, one of a few and one of the biggest of its kind. Its exhibitions are dealing with cultural, historical, religious and social aspects of death. When building the museum in 1989, the former stabling of the "Henschel Mansion" was rebuilt into a half glasshouse half terrace place.
*from latin "sepulcrum", meaning grave/tomb
