MS Schrittmacher | Martin Stiefermann



Production Details / Press Releases

For the Monologfestival MS Schrittmacher experiments with the order, the rearrangement and the mutual inspiration of content, sound and movement. Ideal and reality of the UN-Charter of Human Rights are the field of tension in which MS Schrittmacher’s performative dance monologue takes place. What is left of a humanistic ideal and fundamental right in a world order that is mostly oriented to different values than the human right, even though recognizing it officially?

During the performance, the dancer Jorge Morro and the musician Albrecht Ziepert will confront the ideal of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with the reality of the Amnesty International Reports. Albrecht Ziepert creates directly the soundtrack for the solo performance consisting of the human right articles recited lively by Jorge Morro.

Words and content become sound, focus through loops and fragmentation and create a new order in which the dancer tackles with reality.

By this principle of a close connection of content and sound, the spoken word does not only serve as a sound for the performance but meanwhile as a set of rules, just as the sound together with the dance examination takes over the function of a rearrangement from an ideal into reality.
