No matter whether siblings are inseparable or on bad terms, loving or jealous – they can hardly escape each other. They play together, laugh and cry, quarrel and hurt each other, they help and occasionally annoy one another. Upon the invitation of the KinderTheaterHaus in Hanover, the contemporary choreographer Martin Nachbar and the dramaturge Gabi dan Droste developed a dance piece for children on the theme of ‘siblings.’ Along with three performers, they bring different constellations of siblings to the stage. They not only examine how in the interplay of brotherly and sisterly closeness and competition, protection and distance, cooperation and fighting, own identities are formed, but also jointly create a new artistic thumbprint for children.
Sat 18 June, followed by a talk with Martin Nachbar and Gabi Dan Droste on the questions: ’What is contemporary in contemporary dance for young persons? What is relevant to the present in a rapidly changing world, in a multi-option society?’
