Bis in die Puppen!
An inclusive dance and theatre project with and of all our sences in 3 acts
with music by David P. Graham | Three Dances - A hommage to Petrouschka (2018) for clarinet, trumpet, percussion, accordion, violin and double bass - Commissioned by the Junge Oper am Rhein
Commissioned by Junge Oper am Rhein the composer David P. Graham wrote the three-part piece Three Dances - A hommage to Petrouschka, following Strawinskys "Petruschka". Since January 2018 round 50 children and adolescents with and without educational needs confront themselves creatively with Grahams colourful music and the topics of the world-famous ballet "Petruschka". During those working units they were developing the collective piece with the title Bis in die Puppen!.
In three different groups of extracurricular inclusive dancing groups with students of Hulda-Pankok-Gesamtschule and Dieter-Forte-Gesamtschule the young artists dealt with the subjects "fair", "being a doll" or "longing" in an associative way: What makes me wanting to got to this magical place "fair"? When do I feel like beeing a doll, controlled by others? Where does longing lead me to?
The results will be presented together with 6 musicians of Studio Musikfabrik.
