Nobody dies in the middle of his life

25th - 27th July 2019 radialsystem.de

With "Nobody dies in the middle of his life", Nico and the Navigators continue their successful format of staged concerts: How do we live with the certainty that we must die? Are there exercises with which we can prepare for this farewell? Should we make death a celebration, as Nietzsche suggested? Or would it be better to dance on the volcano beforehand?

With music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Franz Schubert, Leonard Cohen, Rufus Wainwright, Klaus Nomi and others, quiet and euphoric moments alternate in a lively musical debate - and represent the power of death as the measure of all life.
