AWAL / BEGINNING
A PERFORMANCE INSTALLATION OF DANCE WITH LIVE MUSIC ABOUT STARTING OVER AND CONTINUING ON
How can we regain hope in the face of personal loss and existential threat? Where do we find new sources of joy and promise for the future? We fall down and pick ourselves back up over and over again. What is this perpetual motion that drives us ever forward?
rubarb dance & art explores these questions through dance, music, and visual art, drawing inspiration from traditional Indonesian music and dance. Working in international collaboration, the ensemble transforms the House of Indonesian Cultures in Berlin into a laboratory of synergies in which visual and sensory experiences overlap. The performance installation unfolds within diverse spaces, opening up new perspectives and auditory experiences.
