REQUIEM FOR A BROKEN WORLD
2023 | EP | Original Dance Theatre Music
REQUIEM FOR A BROKEN WORLD is the original music for the socio-critical dance theater performance EIN SPIEGEL IM SPIEGEL by the Labortheater Dresden. The story is based on Michael Ende's story "The station cathedral stood on a large floe" from his collection DER SPIELGEL IM SPIEGEL.
The music and dance performance are divided into three parts:
Part one - REQUIEM FOR A BROKEN WOLRD - describes the state of emptiness and being lost after the collapse of the capitalist order based on personal greed.
Part two - THE COLLAPSE - recapitulates the capitalist system, which is collapsing due to increasing greed and the never-ending pursuit of wealth.
Part three - A NEW ERA - describes a tender and hopeful approach to a future with a better and fairer sciety.
