Please note: Unfotunately, the performance on Tue 12.11. doesn't take place.
In a ball, woven together, diverse, a cohort, a pack, a whole pride: the Mishpocha (“Mischpoke” in Yiddish German). The Yiddism “Mishpocha” denotes family, community, kinship. We are all someone’s child, yet family constellations are as varied as human relations can be. “MISCHPOKE” plays with this web of relations between different generations, it is touching, humorous, energetic and impulsive. Professional dance creators and their children create a temporary communion. The 14-strong ensemble, with an age span ranging between 3 and 71 years, questions x-rays and scrutinises potential, changes and different qualities in relationships. A tentacled and antlered mishpocha treks through the room in order to newly discover the cosmos of relationships.
Cologne choreographer Barbara Fuchs founded her label tanzfuchs PRODUKTION in 2003, a company marked by innovative and interdisciplinary dance theatre arts for adults and children alike. “MISCHPOKE” puts different generations together on one stage. tanzfuchs PRODUKTION has been a recipient of the Excellence Grant of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. The play will relocate to Düsseldorf, immediately following its premiere at Cologne’s ehrenfeldstudios.
