Rakete presents a new generation of performance artists, choreographers and dancers who are looking for alternative narratives. A journey to unknown galaxies and new life forms. All we need for the exploration of space is the spirit of discovery and a day ticket. Three. Two. One. Zero.

This will be the fifth edition of Rakete – after two years of online premieres, this festival can once again take off as a live event. This time, the focus will be on a selection of young artistic positions from the local and international dance and performance scene. Mohamed Toukabri – who was already part of the 2019 edition – presents a touching mother-son duet that addresses the geopolitical borders which define both intimate relationships and a dancer’s career. Afterwards, Julia Müllner will create a utopian space with the help of simple everyday objects and the microcosm of dust. On the second weekend, Lena Schattenberg will deconstruct and remix scores by different choreographers, while Susanne Songi Griem will begin her journey in a green landscape to deal with the complexities of change, solitude, discomfort and compassion. And, on the third weekend, caner teker will enter the ring to shed light on the fragile masculinity of oiled musclemen, while artist tiran will define the cultural phenomenon of ‘black male melancholia’ by blending the melodramatic gestures of divas and black male rap stars.

Artists: Julia Müllner, Lena Schattenberg, Susanne Songi Griem, caner teker, tiran, Mohamed Toukabri
