Schlachten III - The Number of the Beast

Marc Sinan Company

5 p.m. Barbecue and Suckling Pig 6 p.m. Concert "The Number of the Beast" (Premiere) 8 p.m. Screening of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Germany / Sweden Extremely human or humanly extreme? Is man completely human only when he loves and hates, creates and kills, seduces and is seduced, when he revels and plays with relish? When love, lust and death become one? The beast of man manifests particularly well in this triad - appealing, repugnant, unfathomable and still endlessly vivid. With their 1982 album "The Number of the Beast" Iron Maiden released an opus full of disturbing invocations. Fast forward 36 years and together with his band, the composer and guitarist Marc Sinan will explore man's terrifying contradictions when he's pushed to the very edge. This is the last part of the "Schlachten" concert series - a night of advanced music, death, heavy metal, seduction, soccer and suckling pig.

Women for Common Spaces

Yasmine Merei & Guests

"Female Voices in Exile is an attempt to put an end to the period of demoralizing isolation and to salvage the debris of collapsed humanity. It is an attempt to whisper stories in the ear of the world." (Yasmine Merei) For the first time, the Berlin project "Women for Common Spaces" is inviting visitors to attend a community event at Radialsystem. Along with artists, women from the project, and other partners, the project founder Yasmine Merei will present the initiative's work, transforming Sasha Waltz & Guests' studio into a "common space" for listening. Recently-arrived Berliners will read a selection of their own texts in German and Arabic. A welcoming atmosphere and a concert featuring Shadia Abu Hamdan (voice) and Nabil Arbaain (oud) will help to create a space for conversation and for getting to know one another. Following the event and also in the frame of Sasha Waltz & Guests' thematic focus Education & Community a performance of Amal by Medhat Aldaabal and Davide Camplani takes place in the hall of Radialsystem at 8 pm. As a non-profit initiative, "Women for Common Spaces" aims to develop a network of well-informed and self-confident Arabic-speaking women in exile. It is currently setting up a formal association to pursue that goal. Since it began its work in 2017, women from across the Middle East have discussed political and social themes and talked about their experiences and the challenges they face. Participants have also gone on to put down their thoughts on paper: in cooperation with the Allianz Kulturstiftung, "Women for Common Spaces" has so far presented women's voices in two German-Arabic publications, entitled "Female Voices in Exile". A Program by Sasha Waltz & Guests, Education & Community and Radialsystem. During the year 2017-18, Sasha Waltz & Guests was the legal sponsor of the pilot phase of "Women for Common Spaces". The project was further supported by the residency program "Artists at Risk" of the Allianz Kulturstiftung. Berlin Mondiale is the cooperation partner for the workshop program, in cooperation with refugee accommodation in the districts of Kreuzberg, Charlottenburg and Lichtenrade, as well as the Radialsystem and the Akademie der Künste.

Amal

Medhat Aldaabal and Davide Camplani

Wishes that the mind might have already written off, conflicting emotions and premonitions, pain, fear and hope. Medhat Aldaabal and Davide Camplani, both dancers and choreographers, use all means of contemporary dance to depict the trying state of being "in-between": the process of adjusting to life in a new society. "Amal" is the Arabic word for hope, as well as being the name of the boy who climbs on the four dancers' shoulders - setting them in motion again and again with gentle severity. Accompanied by the percussionist Ali Hasan, each dancer finds different poetic images for the space between past and future. February 2016 marked the start of a weekly dance workshop for unaccompanied minors from Syria led by Syrian dancers and dancers of the Sasha Waltz & Guests company. It was part of the company's platform "ZUHÖREN - a third space for art and politics". The piece originated there: Drawing on the ideas of Medhat Aldaabal, together with Davide Camplani, five dancers developed "Amal". After the initial showings at Radialsystem, the production was continuously developed and was shown in June 2017 for the first time in all its full-length glory at Sophiensæle. A production by Sasha Waltz & Guests. Made in Radialsystem. The performances of "Amal" at Radialsystem are funded by the fellowship-programme " Weltoffenes Berlin" (Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe) and "Artists at Risk" (Allianz Cultural Foundation). Sasha Waltz & Guests are funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe and the Capital Cultural Fund.

F & G

Showing Jeremy Nelson and Luis Lara Malvacías

"F" and "G" are the sixth and seventh pieces in a series of highly structured improvisational duets: "From A to Z". Taking each piece's title from a different letter of the alphabet, the project focuses on many aspects of time and uses signposts and issues connected with life and ageing as a framework for these explorations. In "F" (as in "field") the stage is offered as an open field welcoming the audience to observe the regular practice and subjects of research, time and the instant performance of thought processes, unadorned. This is in contraposition to "G" (as in "Ground") where the regular practice is contextualized within a defined and limited space, a ground inhabited by random objects and material that serve as conduits - and sometimes obstacles - to further explore the concept of duration, or the way we perceive the space between two successive events. With kind support of Sasha Waltz & Guests.

FORT/DA III: Unbox (Clear Skies Remix)

Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop

Grand finale: no beginning, no end, and it will get late. Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop goes back to the future for "FORT/DA III - Unbox (Clear Skies Remix)". The 2016 production "Unmöglichkeit II - Unbox" will be upended, remixed into the open, petrified and dashed to shivers. Blue skies and beautiful bodies, everything stays the same, and nothing will be revealed anymore. This production turns on the presence and absence of music, projections and acousmatics. The audience will get lost in labyrinths where it will find music that's nicely weird and unreasonably beautiful. They will meet Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop there - disembodied and drifting across slides, or gazing from a pedestal after having turned into a pillar of salt. Franz Schubert will be in attendance, too, listening to the aural phantasms of Berlin composer Rashad Becker. The renowned composer, musicologist, art historian and philosopher Sebastian Claren will summon Saturn's gloom. And during the sacrifice of a violoncello, the audience already drifting away on a sentimental journey, the composer and lecturer Pierluigi Billone will scrape infinitely strange melodies out of wood, thread and horsehair. A dream in grey. Kaleidoskop goes romantic - in series! Don't ask questions, and don't stop playing. In this three-part concert series Franz Schubert, Sebastian Claren, César Franck, Peter Ablinger, Pauline Oliveros, Theodor W. Adorno and Giuseppe Verdi meet Philipp Enders, copy & waste and Rashad Becker. Radialsystem turns into a playground where you will hear splutters, stammers and scratches, and where you will indulge in the sweet sound of strings. First and foremost, it's all about the music and the sensual, fragile, complex and touching ways in which it leads our thoughts into the unspeakable. A project by Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop in cooperation with Radialsystem. Funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe. The comissioned works by Rashad Becker and Sebastian Claren are funded by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.

Stöberempfehlung: Das Kooperationsprojekt OUTERNATIONAL von PODIUM Esslingen und VAN Magazine im Rahmen des Fellowship-Programms #bebeethoven stellt Künstler vor, die sich in ihrer Arbeit mit einer von Klang- und Aufführungstradition geprägten Musiksprache und deren Fortführungen, Hybriden und Kollisionen beschäftigen. Ausgehend von der Perspektive der portraitierten Musikern werden Szenen globaler Musiktraditionen entdeckt, in denen sich Altes und Neues, Tradition und Moderne gegenseitig immer wieder neu befruchten. Elisa Erkelenz, Autorin der Reportage über Derya Yildirim und Taner Akyol, ist mit ihrem Outernational-Projekt Ende September im Rahmen eines #bebeethoven Showcase bei uns zu Gast.
