With choreographic devotion to the entanglement of body and sound, the artists of the "Rakete" festival deconstruct our experiences of time with quiet ecstasy and bold tenderness. In intimate scenes beyond functionality and spectacle, they bring about moments for attentive watching and open-minded listening – creating spaces where the view from outside seems absent, just like in your own home.

Dance(ing) as a means of suspending time, as a place of retreat, and as a tool for collectivity. Sometimes explicitly, sometimes associatively – the interlocking of time and feeling-at-home runs through this festival edition.

Between chairs, spotlights and loudspeakers, the artists go in search of places of retreat and interrogate their origins; in pieces that go beyond the bounds of customary length or that accelerate transgressively, with slow gestures and erupting postures, as a rough noise concert or choral composition, in dark séances and dazzling images, they try out new aesthetic perspectives on dance and performance. "Rakete" is committed to these ambivalences and invites you to tarry in defiance – including the supporting programme featuring listening sessions, readings, workshops and a lecture with a Marxist view of the climate catastrophe, as this planet is home to all of us, in the end.
