Sometimes it performs miracles. Sometimes it steals the mind. Most of the time, it is greatest where it is least expected. And even if we have been disappointed many times, we all need it to live: hope. A most amazing quality with which human kind has always tried to survive in times of crisis. In personal as well as collective moments of crisis, the question of the ability to practice hope becomes existential.


In her dance piece, Rebecca Weingartner pursues the thesis that hope as a desire and positive attitude towards life can be learned, physically brought about, and physically-emotionally experienced. One of the recipes for hoping is called hopping. The audience will get to know many other strategies in the course of this personal evening.
