How are you doing in these strange times? How do you remain strong? Have you been thinking about the first thing you want to do when these times are over? The artistic team and children from the Wim Wenders Gymnasium tackle the pandemic time. Between movement and language, they create an intimate encounter and make themselves heard. They launch their thoughts onto the digital stage in a video presentation.
The project will emerge as the result of a weekly school workshop held in January and February 2021, in cooperation with the municipal Wim Wenders Gymnasium.
Josep Caballero García worked for Pina Bausch, Urs Dietrich, Doris Stelzer, Xavier le Roy and others and deals with physical aesthetics. He strives for an open dialogue on topical social developments in his stage plays.
Kamila Kurczewski studied communication design at the FH Düsseldorf. She has a longstanding collaborative connection to Düsseldorf director Ingo Toben in which they, together with other artists*, developed interdisciplinary new formats that oscillated between performance, concert, storytelling, film, and installation.
