Wie es wirklich war

Männchen und Ball in Neonfarben auf dunkler Bühne

How did the universe come into being? Did it grow out of a nutshell, from a rib, did it spring from stardust? And how did it all start? With a word, a crack, a moment of perfect silence? Artists Lea Martini, Enis Turan and Johanna Ackva, along with the participants, explore these questions in “Wie es wirklich war”. Assumptions, indications, and evidence are realised in talks, as workshops and in instant performances, with the aid of earthly materials, in bodies and on screens. The artistic team developed this online performance for school classes from the stage play “Eine Geschichte der Welt (A history of the world)”. Here, too, an “invitation to openness, fantasy and independent thought” (Potsdamer Neue Nachrichten) applies.

Lea Martini studied dance and choreography in Berlin, Arnhem and Amsterdam and founded choreographic collaborations such as performance collective White Horse and Deter/Müller/Martini. She teaches workshops in different contexts or is involved in dance projects with and for children and youths. Lea Martini, Enis Turan and Johanna Ackva most recently guested at tanzhaus nrw during this year’s Take-Off festival for a young audience.

The performances may be booked by schools as an exception in this case for 1 € per pupil. Please refer to Dr Verena Anker for more information:
