“Till Velten’​s symphony.land – A Social Symphony”
world premiere
A Sufi dancer from Afghanistan, who creates a new homeland for himself through dance. A Syrian out virtuoso whose instrument understands all the secrets of being a refugee. A lost singer from Finland who seaches for a new life in the music of Henry Purcell. In symphony.land people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds come together on the stage and take the risk of exposing themselves with all their strengths and wounds, their failures and hopes – in terms of musical, but also by sharing their personal stories about the very different paths they have taken in their lives. The theme of flight − flight from war and terror, but also flight within – plays a central role, as does the construction of a new home: through language, encounter, music. As a starting point for his project, the artist Till Velten has chosen a classic of Western music history: Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony. Can it become a temporary home? Can it lead to changes or itself be open to transformation?
