Judith Hummel: Wo komme ich her? (Digital World Premiere)

Grind words between teeth and tongue, produce red powder from bricks, follow memories, use the body, do tangible actions, and leave new traces behind while searching for traces ... At Altes Betonwerk Sendling, the performer from Munich Judith Hummel and the musician Evi Keglmaier set out on a physical journey searching for fragments of a past life. Searching for her origins, a granddaughter follows the traces of her grandmother. Her grandmother fled from the Banat region in Romania during the last years of the war and came to Germany. Her route also went through Hungary, but the memories of this remain a "black spot." In an anecdote the grandmother tells about how as a child she ground bricks to make red bell pepper powder for her make-believe grocery store. This stage of the performative research "where do I come from?" emanates from these themes.

Professionals who are interested are also cordially invited to participate if they would like to gain insights into what is currently happening in the Munich dance scene.

ONLINE WORKSHOP: Stumble Forward, Standing Upright and Stepping out of Line

We always step out of line when we cannot meet expectations we are confronted with. Or don't want to. How much creative leeway opens up when we withdraw from the compulsion to acclimatize?

With the language of dance, this workshop for teenagers and young adults conveys suggestions for how we can put adopted ideas and images in motion and reshape them. "Old" steps from classical and modern repertoires will be conveyed, which are meant to be broken open and created "anew." All of the participants will receive "secret" assignments to "disrupt" the choreography. New scopes of creativity are created from the common disruptive factors. Here art consists of adopting what is useful from the "old" but also letting go what restricts.

Saturday, May 08th & Sunday, May 9th, 3 p.m., Zoom Conference (participation only with camera)

Management: Simone Endres, Campus – Bayerisches Staatsballett
Information + Registration: (until Thursday, May 6th) at jugend@staatsoper.de
