THE WORLD IS UPSIDE DOWN
The normal trust in truth and values suddenly seems disposable and security feels more like an illusion rather than a constant we rely on. Surreal concepts suddenly become an option, the unthinkable is just a Pindrop away.

The re-imagination of the fourteen songs of Schubert’s last song cycle “SCHWANENGESANG” offers infinite possibilities to interpret the past, present and future. A selection of outstanding artists, who are given licence to produce response pieces invite for the creation of a kaleidoscope effect of music, dance and spoken word.
