resi laetitia arnaudLaetitia Arnaud Company " Extinction des Feux" 
Dance (France)

This is where doubt is explored. A feeling, an impression, another reality that seems to come from an inner evil. A doubt need not necessarily undermine self-confidence, but it can influence daily life.
In general, doubts are not very popular, because they lead to negative definitions and, due to a lack of answers, cause a hellish spiral of questions. However much humanity may evolve, doubts are the obligatory companions of human evolution. I doubt, therefore I am?
Laetitia Arnaud: choreography. Clara Protar: dance.
Aurélien Bednarek: dance. Julien Arnaud: music.

In cooperation with  Micadanses-Paris und La Bergerie de Soffin

The residency at Schloss Bröllin is supported with the production prize at the Choreographer Competition Hanover.

Yuko Matsuyama "Collaps"

Dance & Acrobatics (Germany / Japan)

The stopping and interruption of movement sequences are the main focus of "collapse". The idea of the research is to investigate the emphasis, symbolism and ambiguity in stopping a movement with artists from European acrobatics, Indian martial arts and Nichibu, a Japanese dance.
The central starting point of the research are text excerpts from "Collapse: Why Societies Survive and Fall" by the US geographer Jared M. Diamond, which can be linked to the research topic "Stopping". "Collapse" examines tension, compression and the radiation of energy when stopping a movement.

This Residency at Schloss Bröllin is a cooperation with the Flausen Residence Program. (Scholarship Group #44)

"EAST Project! How to make good art for East Germans?" 

Theatre-Performance (Netherlands / Germany)

What does it mean to come from a country that no longer exists? What does an East German identity mean? "OST Projekt!" fills the space between reality and fiction on the topic of East German history with very personal experiences of the changes after 1990 and different perspectives between the generations.
In order to better understand the situation and their own positions, the artists* returned to the eastern home towns of Rika and Burkhard, where they listen to and collect stories. With this project, they bring the core of the theme to the stage, allowing the audience to experience feelings of loss and transformation from three different perspectives in the theatre space.
Burkhard Körner: direction, performance, choreography. Rika Weniger: direction, performance, production. Noah Voelker: direction, dramaturgy, performance, management.

resi metanoia theaterMetanoia Theatre „Shahmeran“ 
visual/physical theatre (Australia/Turkey)

Shahmeran is a devised physical and visual theatre work for children created by Australian theatre company Metanoia Theatre in collaboration with Maltepe University in Turkey and Turkish artists. The work will be presented at the Mardin International Children and Youth Theatre Festival 1-8 November 2020. Shahmeran is a mythological god/dess that emerges from Mesopotamia, an important cultural figure in the Mardin area that explores themes of nature, life, healing, power and eternity. Shahmeran is a half human half snake figure that serves as a protector against evil and as a symbol for transformation. This work is highly visual and stylised, with little language and many universal themes.

„Mojo & Moni –
A Love Story at the Edge of the World“
Circus-dance-music-street theatre (Germany/USA)

A virtuosic and surreal transposition of the triumphs and confrontations of everyday life. This work juxdaposes “New Clown” with unique Aerial Techniques, Dance and Live Music. We use a new and simple apparatus, counterweight rope, as a physical metaphor for the ever rebalancing of relationship roles. A love story at the edge of the world is the story of two flighty & dynamic characters; Mojo & Moni, who are trying to stay grounded in their surprising relationship while flying, dancing and launching each other through the air. The show reveals to the audience a keyhole perspective on the absurd and tragically-comic world of human relationships.Two everyday super heros who discover the secret worlds and abilities hidden in the potential between them. A Love Story at the Edge of the World, is a dangerous and poetic, comic tour de force.

resi tanja kroneTHE HOUSE / Tanja Krone, Johanna-Yasirra Kluhs
& guests "Talk to Real People (2): Overland"

Performance (Germany)

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Germany's reunification. Election campaigns take advantage of the event, a multitude of discussions are held, art festivals are created. Tanja Krone was 13 years old in September 1989. 30 years later, she sets off for Saxony. In her search for the turning point, she explores the motives from which everyone became what he/she is or seem to be today. In "Talk to Real People" the difference between "own" and "foreign" speech becomes porous. The discussion that has begun is continued in a number of diferent formats. At Schloss Bröllin, the artists and their guests will work on the second part of of performative discussions
" Talk to Real People (2): Over Land".
Tanja Krone: concept & moderation. Johanna-Yasirra Kluhs: concept & dramaturgy
Bärbel Schwarz: music. Joel Wardenga: political education.
In cooperation with: Stadt Frankenberg / Sa., Club Atomino Chemnitz, Festspielhaus Hellerau, Gedenkstätte Deutsche Teilung Marienborn. Unterstützt durch die Bundeszentrale für Politische Bildung

2020 RES Cooperativa Maura Morales749022Cooperativa Maura Morales "Subjection (AT)"
Dance theatre (Germany / Cuba)

Maura Morales once again focuses from a feminine perspective on the artistic treatment of two core concepts of human suffering: dependence and subjugation.
In this piece, this kind of dependence is illustrated by the relationship between the musician (man) and the dancer. On one hand, the musician, who does not produce "his own" sounds, is dependent on the dancers generating the sounds in order to process them. On the other hand the dancer, connected to the musician by a multitude of cables, is reduced to the production of sounds. This initially very clearly comprehensible image of the dependency between man and machine mutates in the further course of the piece into a metaphor for the dependency and subjugation of women by a male-dominated worldview.

resi koljaKolja Huneck "CM_30"

Contemporary circus (Germany)

In this production, the vinyl is less a symbol, nor does it have the function of a record – it is the shape of the object that inspires Kolja Huneck. A thin disc of 30cm diameter, rotating in the air, rolling on the ground or balancing on a body, reflecting, scattering and colouring the light. New shapes, shadows and patterns are created. Some see it as an abstract work of art, others recognize the reflections of sunlight under the water surface. The theoretical starting point is the colour theory of Goethe, Rudolf Steiner and Josef Albers. How can philosophy flow into research with circus techniques?
Kolja Huneck: Actor, project management. Benjamin Richter: Eye from outside. Jay Gilligan: Artistic advice. Andrea Salustri: Artistic advice. Tim Oelbrandt: Lighting Design, Illusions. Arthur Wagenaar: Sound
In cooperation with: KreativKultur Wien, Circunstruction Rotterdam, La Maison des Jonglages Paris, Bauhausstiftung Dessau, Dommelhof Neerpelt,Belgien.

resi petraBerit Einemo Frøysland "Petra"
Contemporary Dance (Germany / Norway)

A solo dance piece to Rainer Werner Fassbinder's "Die bitteren Tränen der Petra von Kant" (1973). The movie is a triangular melodrama about a successful fashion designer and the tragic love for her younger model and protégé Karin. With this solo Berit Einemo Frøysland explores the body language of the film character "Petra" - a complex character from the Fassbinder universe, a mixture of Hollywood star, Greek nymph and fashion model. The choreographer seeks a narrative line through composed movements to the loss of control. Slipping, falling, stumbling, up to the loss of all taste and dignity.
Berit Einemo Frøysland: choreography, dance. Philipp Rhensius: Sound design. Leonie Brandner: costume design. Stefan Britze: Stage design.
In cooperation with: dock 11 Berlin, Tandem Programm / LAFT Berlin. Funded by the Arts Council Norway.

resi chis leuenbergerThe project sheds light on the white male body with its power and privileges and deals with questions of inequality based on gender and race. The body of the American dancer Matthew Rogers is exposed to the critical gaze of a number of women from different ethnic backgrounds who are invited to rehearse "ain't got no, I got life". Their descriptions and interpretations will be recorded and evaluated. What does the white man stand for? What justifies his presence? What do we project onto him? The choreographic structure is based on the song "ain't got no, I got life" by Nina Simone.
Chris Leuenberger: Concept, choreography, artistic direction. Matthew Rogers: dance, collaborative choreography. Sally de Kunst: mentoring. Thomas Jeker: Sound. Fatin Abbas: Text. Pascale Altenburger, Serena Dankwa, Lea Martini, Monika Truong, Living Smile Vidya: Outside Eyes / Voices. Sabine Jud: Production management.

resi alb vereinKünstlerkollektiv Der Schwäbische Online-Albverein
Performance Art (Germany)

The collective goes on performative hiking – online and offline. In day-long performances, they click their way through the Black Forest or climb the highest mountain in the solar system on Mars, they make Google Maps their gallery, or walk around a house for eight hours and declare the resulting trail a temporary sculpture. While the importance of geographical location disappears, new virtual latitudes emerge. Virtual and real world intertwine, actions in one sphere affect the other. New opportunities and risks open up. Reality does not end at the screen.
