For many months I planned my debut as choreographer, which might now not happen cause of Covid-19. Only with your support I can make it. The plan: with 4 dancers and 4 saxophones I will explore the subject HOME: To be able to leave your home can be a privilege and on the other hand questions our identity. But who we are now is more than a nostalgic memory of where we started our journey.
In a music and dance project with four dancers and a saxophone quartet I will choreograph two public evenings (21st+22nd of Sept 2020) as my debut in the transformed Philharmonic hall of Gasteig Munich. I will explore the topic of HOME: How can one find a home far away from the culture one is used to? What remains from the old home, how does the relationship to it change?
The Arcis Saxophon Quartett plays music by Shostakovich, Schulhoff, Weill and Hiller (world premiere). You can listen to the music here: Playlist
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
With these two evenings I want to introduce myself as a choreographer to the public of Munich by giving my full evening debut. In the transitional phase from being a dancer to being a choreographer that’s an important milestone.
The evening is for dance and classical music lovers and all people interested in arts.
Why would you support this project?
To be honest: I can improvise very well in terms of stage and costume and everything that goes with it. But my artists and all stage workers have to be properly paid. Otherwise it doesn't make sense! Due to the reduced audience size due to hygiene requirements and other regulations, my debut evening, which has been planned and organized for over a year, is no longer profitable simply by selling tickets. Therefore, the evening cannot take place like this. However, I hope to find support through this crowdfunding and to achieve the impossible. As I said, there is only one parameter: The well-being of my artists, for whom every performance opportunity during this Corona period is so important. Toi Toi Toi!
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money is used to pay for logistics, costumes and accessories. And the most important thing: the artists and the other stage people (light, costume, mask, dramaturge, composer) receive an appropriate payment. In corona times in particular, this is vital for all those involved.
