UM:LAUT – múm plays “Menschen am Sonntag”

Film Concert

After almost ten years, the UM:LAUT series takes its final lap in February. Since 2011, nearly fifty artists have performed at radialsystem in the capacity of this successful event series, and to bring it to a close, múm now returns to the venue. This time these crossover artists again set to music “Menschen am Sonntag”, (“People on Sunday”), a masterpiece of the German silent film era. Together with percussionist Samuli Kosminen, múm founders Gunnar Tynes and Örvar Smárason provide a live soundtrack to the film classic – a timeless and lively portrait of Berlin and its young inhabitants at the end of the 1920s.

Vocalconsort Berlin

Spiegelungen

Vocalconsort Berlin

Renaissance and modernity in dialogue: Under the direction of Michael Alber, Vocalconsort Berlin presents a Spanish and German programme. Works by Orlando di Lasso and Tomás Luis de Victoria are juxtaposed with world premieres of pieces by Iñigo Giner Miranda and Martin Wistinghausen, interweaving content and music. Multi-facetted reflections create manifold links between 16th and 21st century music, tradition and avant-garde, as well as contemporaries, musical languages, and styles. The new compositions have been commissioned by Vocalconsort Berlin.

THE GAP

THE GAP

Performance by Michael Rauter/ Bob’s Company

“Ideals of reason tell us how the world should be; experience tells us that it is rarely so. Growing up requires us to confront the gap between the two without giving up one of them.” (Susan Neiman) What does growing up mean in a world in which human maturity seems to be synonymous with surrender and renunciation? In his solo performance, Michael Rauter draws on the thesis held by American philosopher Susan Neiman: Growing up is an individual process of enlightenment, and seeks the state of productive instability between expectation and result, movement and stagnation, fantasy and reality.

Lohengrin Dreams

Lohengrin Dreams

Performance by Charlotte Engelkes

Incorporating no fewer than three dancers, two acrobats, and an opera singer, this new dance piece by Swedish performance artist Charlotte Engelkes tells the story of Elsa von Brabant: Accused of having murdered her younger brother, she is rescued at the last moment by a heroic knight. She is promised love and happiness if she can only refrain from asking herself who this hero actually is. But can Elsa manage to do that? Charlotte Engelkes and her ensemble juggle faith and doubt, as well as dream and reality, to newly composed music by sound designer Willy Bopp, based on Richard Wagner’s opera “Lohengrin”. Sasha Waltz & Guests presents the German premiere of “Lohengrin Dreams” in Berlin.
