Hello To Emptiness

Choreography: Stephanie Thiersch

Hello to Emptiness with five dancer-singers of different cultures and generations as well as a local “choir of elders” is an echo and a reflection on social vulnerability and the handling of grief, to which the pandemic crisis has lent new urgency. A “shadow” chorus of elders resonates the past (and the future), commenting the action on the stage. Choreographer Stephanie Thiersch develops interdisciplinary stage productions, performances and films and sees her choreographic work in a wider framework of interdisciplinary movement research, which initially incorporated new media and visual arts, and currently especially music, into choreographic thinking.
