Lohengrin Dreams turné

Lohengrin Dreams

We just started the tour in Jönköping, Kalmar, Växjö, Karlshamn, Malmö and Berlin

“We all come from a context, we all belong together – this is the feeling that is so beautifully conveyed as Charlotte Engelkes, with her own unique approach and with a multifaceted ensemble, puts together yet another Wagner opera.” Svenska Dagbladet

WAGNER, WISHES AND FORBIDDEN QUESTIONS

After succesful premier at Norrlandsoperan and performances in Dansens Hus Stockholm, Lohengrin Dreams are now touring with Dancenet Sweden and to Berlin.

Charlotte Engelkes continues her exploration of the operaworld by Richard Wagner – playful, dead serious and totally bonkers. This time together with choreographer Ossi Niskala and with sound designer Willi Bopp, whose music together with the Norrlandsoperan Symphony, is playfully based on Wagner.

After successess like Miss Very Wagner, Siegfried – the Very Wagner Hero Hour, All is Divine, Flying Dutchmen and THE GOLD it’s time for Lohengrin Dreams– a piece about standing up for your dreams, then giving in to pressure and finally finding yourself asking the one question you have sworn never to ask: “Where do you come from?”

With three dancers, two acrobats and one operasinger, Engelkes presents her latest epic performance. Lohengrin Dreams deals with the struggle between belief and doubt, fairytale and sink realism, wrapped in wondrous and quaint esthetics, to new written music and Wagner. Will the swanborne hero ever show up? And from where? Could popping the question rather connect us than separate us?

“Charlotte goes Cinderella” eller the Ash-girl

(for english scroll down)

Urpremiär for “Charlotte Goes Cinderella” eller the Ash-girl

Äntligen lagom till jul kommer Engelkes hybridversion av sagan om the Ash-tree girl eller Askungen, som ett gästspel till moment:teater i Gubbängen!

Charlotte gräver upp sagorna och ner prinsarna. I ett ärligt försök att hitta sin egen röst berättar hon ursprungssagan om Askungen – eller en saga sprungen ur minnen – på sitt högst egna personliga sätt. En glasklar och sotig musikalisk upprättelse för barnet inom oss. Och kanske en undermedveten taktik att hitta en drömprins ovan eller under jord.

Urpremiär Fredag 23 nov kl 1900, på moment:teater,

Gubbängstorget 117, T-bana Gubbängen, Stockholm, Sverige.

“Charlotte Goes Cinderella”  or the Ash-girl

Finally and closer to Christmas, Engelkes hybrid version of the fairytale about the Ash-tree girl or Cinderella, opens as a guest performance at moment:teater in Gubbängen!

Charlotte digs up the fairytales and buries the princes. In a honest attempt to find her true voice, she tells the story of Cinderella- or a more sinister tale, in her very own way.  A sooty and crystal clear restitution of the child within. And maybe a subconscious tactic to find a prince above earth – or under.

World premier Friday 23 nov 1900h, moment:teater, Gubbängstorget 117,

T-bana Gubbängen, Stockholm, Sverige.

World Premier EΞΟΔΟΣ/ EXODUS by Sasha Waltz & Guests

World Premier EΞΟΔΟΣ/ EXODUS

by Sasha Waltz & Guests at Radialsystem Berlin

On 23rd August 2018 the new creation EΞΟΔΟΣ/ Exodos by Sasha Waltz will have its world premiere at the Radialsystem in Berlin. In EΞΟΔΟΣ / Exodos Sasha Waltz explores how humans and their collective movements are shaped by the desire to break out of the Here into the There, out of the Self into the We, out of material space into spaces made of sound and light. In modern Greek, EΞΟΔΟΣ /Exodos means egress, going out into nightlife, as well as literally the exit. What spaces and states do we want to probe into? What forces do our insistent touch unleash? To explore shared dynamics, Sasha Waltz dissolves the boundaries between stage and auditorium.

Performances 24. 25. 26. August 2018, previews 20. 22 August 2018. All performances start at 8 pm. The production is a coproduction with the Ruhrtriennale – EΞΟΔΟΣ/ Exodos will be performed during the festival at the Jahrhunderhalle Bochum in September.

Dancers: Hwang Hwanhee, Liza Alpízar Aguilar, Peggy Grelat-Dupont, Claudia Serpa Soares, Annapaola Leso, Lorena Justribo Manion, Thusnelda Mercy, Clementine Deluy, Sasa Queliz, Michal Mualem, Charlotte Engelkes, Margaux Marielle-Trehoüart, Virgis Puodziunas, Davide Camplani, Jiri Bartovanec, Corey Scott-Gilbert, Davide Di Pretoro, Nicola Mascia, Aladino Rivera, Josh Elliott Johnson, Stylianos Tsatsos, Luc Dunberry, Tian Gao, Blenard Azizaj, Yael Schnell, Zaratiana Randrianantrenaina.
