For 44 years, the mining company Wismut extracted uranium from the Ore Mountains of Saxony for use in the Soviet atomic project. Today, the mines are closed, but the history radiates through the landscape and bodies. In this docu-dance, a movement choir invites the audience into the hollowed-out landscapes to see what new forms of collective, ideology, landscape and life can exist here.

OKTOBER 17 | OPENING PARTY AFTER THE PERFORMANCE
feat DJ Nara and DJ Mars Dietz aka Sapphic Faggot (experimental music, bass, dance, kuduro, reggaeton, trap, hip hop, brazilian baile funk)

JULE FLIERL (Berlin) wants to tell the story of sound dance. In STÖRLAUT (2018), she embraces the vocal dances of Valeska Gert, mobilizes them as forms that extraterrestrial proclamation exercises when other types of speech fail; STÖRLAUT brought her the title Hoffnungsträgerin 2018 from "Tanz" magazine.

MARS DIETZ (New York/Berlin) deals with landscape use and human geography. Her focus is on resource extraction. Her work includes sound installations such as freedom from speech and she is a DJ member of "Bodysnatch".
