SOLIDARITY!

After EQUALITY!, a dance piece about gender equality for young audience, choreographer Rebecca Weingartner wants to continue her work for young audience at Theater Roxy. The idea for SOLIDARITY! matured during the time of the pandemic, when each individual had to adapt its behavior for the good of all.

 

Two dancers and a musician meet. Their biographies are as complex as they are different, but all three of them have experienced the feeling of not belonging. On stage, they overcome physical limits together. In order to succeed, they need active support - from each other and from the audience. They form a choir of moving bodies, a sounding, crashing, singing ensemble that makes itself heard for hidden stories. They tell stories of origin and identity, of visible and invisible differences and of the desire for togetherness.

SOLIDARITY! is the second production after EQUALITY! as part of a triology examining the three main principles of the French Enlightment slogan "Egalité! Solidarité!* Liberté!"*Solidarity as the gender-neutral term for the french term of brotherhood "fraternité"

 

A dance piece for everyone from age 8 and up.
