Antje Pfundtner in Gesellschaft

Sitzen ist eine gute Idee

Tanzplattform Deutschland 2022,,

How can the uprising be rehearsed? Standing up, sitting down, between the chairs? Albrecht Dürer's "fallen angel" hovers above the scenery, whose motionlessness is not to be confused with inaction. For he calls for play: "My left, left seat is free!" Sometimes an unoccupied folding chair becomes a vacancy and a place where hilarity and wordplay turn into profoundly sad melancholy. A collective solo that is not afraid to ask big questions in company. An evening to stand still, to stand up, to withstand.
