What to do with a festival for young performance artists during a pandemic? With a heavy heart, we had to cancel last year’s edition of Rakete. This year, it will take place online and in two parts – with productions specifically designed for the digital sphere by the artists. The contributions will be available for 72 hours as a free video-on-demand on our website.
In Part 1, Viennese choreographer Samuel Feldhandler will present another of his nuanced musical integrations with dancer Lena Schattenberg. Julia Zastava’s performative installation promises to be an audio-visual journey to another dimension. Eliza Trefas and Katarzyna Paluch will present the stage as a space of contradictions and delightful mischief, and Kidows Kim will share his fascination for the monstrous.
Part 1: Sat 15 – Tue 18 May, 19.30
With: Samuel Feldhandler, Kidows Kim, Eliza Trefas & Katarzyna Paluch, Julia Zastava
