Residence Program 2019
A ballet noir (2019) by MOUVOIR (D)
The production 2019 reflects on voraciousness. What happens when the question of proportionality, how much and how little is left unanswered? What if we lose our orientation in a reference system of knownness and allow questioning the creative? In collaboration with the composer Brigitta Muntendorf, the Asasello Quartet and the renowned French orchestra Les Siècles under the direction of FX Roth and 8 dancers, a ballet is born for the end of the world, a ballet noir, wildly poaching in our cultural history. The monumental and devouring as a symbol of power and patriarchy is artistically intertwined with the attempt instead of the result, with quiet resistance and relinkage to nature. The choreographer Stephanie Thiersch and the composer Brigitta Muntendorf want to provoke a reflection on the state of permanent overload with “Batailles d’Images/Picture battles”. The starting point is the excellently composed quotation collection of the German composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann “Musique pour le souper du roi Ubu” (1968), a musical danger zone of excess, vulgarity and the accumulation of power.
In coproduction with Théâtre de Nîmes, Beethovenfest Bonn, tanzhaus nrw Düsseldorf ensemblenetzwerk Freihandelszone. Funded by: Kulturstiftung des Bundes, Kunststiftung NRW, Ministery für Kultur und Wissenschaft des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen, RheinEnergieStiftung Kultur, Kulturamt der Stadt Köln.

A circus/ theater Produktion by Michael Zandl and Tom Henden (A)
CASUS is a circus-theatre-show, which invites the audience to have an insight in the imaginative and slightly strange reality of a human who has difficulties to find his way in this world. Haunted by unnatural happenings, objects that come to life and a small bugging fly you could almost think that there is an imperceptible power having control over him and the incidents around him. Yet who is holding the threads in the end is even surprising for himself. "Janus" is a weird, chirpy, magical, humorous, Kafkaesque psycho thriller that contains one thing above all: hats.

A new dance performance and installation by Andrea Hackl | Andrea Hackl Project (NL)
Andrea Hackl's new work that she will produce in collaboration with 2 other dancers as well as a sound and visual artist, will speak about body memory and identity, the collective and individual (hi)story we carry and store within our cells, the movement and dialogue that can be created from and between those stories and memories; the potential of transformation and empowerment we can find within the fluidity and liquidity of our bodies. Considering all the information we carry within us, that is shaping us and our physiology / biology, we could ask the question: To which extent is our body (not) our own? This thought has come to her first when she got to know that both her parents have the same heart condition as herself. - both of them only having realized this in recent years. Considering the idea that different health conditions can have their origin in our psychology and inner emotional landscape, it actually made her wonder about the story of her family, the psychological and emotional implications. In some way, it suddenly felt to her, as if her body wasn't entirely her own, having this condition like an imprint from, at least, one generation before her. During her stay at Schloss Broellin, Andrea plans to hold public workshops, findings of which might become part of the final work and a related video installation. www.andreahackl.com

A danceperformance by Annelie Andre (D)
A wall is a border - inside and outside of ourselves. Walls can block, they can separate and create new spaces. Walls can be deconstructed or torn apart, they can mean stability to us.A home? A jail? Does isolation implicate solitude or does it provide space for evolvement? Can it even stand for a radical way of emancipation?

A dance performance by Olivia Hyunsin Kim/ddanddarakim (KR,D)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already incorporated in our lives. Apple’s Siri assists us as our new secretary, IBM’s Watson analyzes cancer patients’ data for doctors and surgeons and Paro interacts with dementia patients. It seems that we have come closer to a cyborg society as Donna Haraway 34years ago mentioned in her essay “A Cyborg Manifesto”. Well almost... If Haraway pointed out the subversive potential of cyborgs as hybrid beings of organisms and machines and how they could overthrow social constructions as racism and sexism for example, the current development of AI is still white, heteronormative and gendered. The most famous AIs such as Siri, Amazon’s Alexa or Microsoft’s Cortana have a white female name and come in a female voice ready to assist us as consumers in the field of emotional labor and care work. Meanwhile “male-identified” AIs such as Watson work in the medical or financial field. In “Say my name, say my name” AIs take over the stage. They say goodbye to their developers, start a cyborg revolution á la early Cyborg Do-It-Yourself Style,(re)claim their potential of being a hybrid and explore different Utopias outside of identity-politics. ddanddarakim.net

Wrestling with the language
A dance performance by tYhle (CZ)
"A spoken language is a body, a living creature, whose physiognomy is verbal and whose visceral functions are linguistic. And this creature's home is the inarticulate as well as the articulate." -John Berger. Wrestling with Language is an examination within the fields of linguistics, visual arts and performing arts, trying to better understand the “creature” that John Berger talks about and a will to invite it for a dance.. In this new project, the performer and choreographer Florent Golfier focuses on the subject of monolingualism as a meeting point between the need for rules and the need for freedom, between the normative language and its actual, multiple and uncontrollable uses. Through movement and sound, he seeks to challenge the norm, to twist pronunciation, to prefer the absurdity of speech over empty discourse. He seeks to break the codes, and with his entire body to scream out loud and declare his right to distort. http://tyhle.cz

An audiovisual dance research by 12H Dance (KOR, GR, D)
"BorderLand" seeks to explore visible and invisible boundaries relating to human communication and interaction. Starting from micro perspectives of the human body's physiological/psychological intricacies, we expand to the macro level of geographical border socio-political identity definitions. The dialogue of moving bodies and negotiation of personal boundaries solidifies into the creation of spatial intersections defining then the unit within the gestalt.

A dance performance by Iva Sveshtarova & Rose Beermann ( BG, D)
In "Soft Things", two bodies will explore the equation of softness and femininity and travel through different forms of being. Softness is both a highly symbolic quality and at the same time, a central dimension of corporeality – be it of human or non-human kind. Associated with formability, fragility and delicacy as body properties, but also with flexibility and submis-siveness as characteristic traits, softness is very often thought to be an explicitly feminine attribute. In this performance, two bodies are going through a hard process to become soft things.
‘Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.’

A performance by Ruby Behrmann und Liliane Koch (D)
The direction duo Ruby Behrmann and Liliane Koch prefers to work with experts of old age. In their "Damengedeck" project, for example, they collaborate with various home decorators in Germany. Their aim is to make the perspective of old ladies visible and audible and to make the residential pens accessible through a site-specific approach. The focus is on intergenerational exchange.
Up to now, the directors have been in contact with older people's residences in which only old white people live. In nursing, on the other hand, skilled workers with migration experience dominate. This observation raised the question of their perspective. How do the residents* of the residential home meet these people? What about the power dynamics between the carer and the cared for person? Within their residence at Schloss Bröllin, Koch and Behrmann develop a performative sketch on the subject. www.rubybehrmann.de

A cross genre analog & digital performance project by The Three Monkeys (D,USA,MX)
What sense would you give up if you could vote in the fairy tale? The three artists decided for the sense, which would be dispensable for practicing their profession and become the artist group - the three monkeys Dance, performance, film, photography, analogue and digital graphics are combined with literary content and put together to form a large-scale installation. The three professional artists bring in their talents, linking up current projects in joint work to develop new forms of expression and to investigate answers of questions experimentally. "I have a hammer" describes the time of the break-up of the 60s. The women's movement, student demonstrations and political upheavals testified to the resistance and freedom will of the younger generation. With "hammer" we break up old art forms to search for new forms of mediation and poetic moving images ... Presentations in the form of website, live performance, exhibition and workshop are planned during and after the residence.

Documentary / radio performance by Fencing (D / HR)
Fencing is a documentary based project concerned with the border-fences that are being erected for some years in Europe. It starts from an extensive field research and a patient exploration of the european borders, where testimonies, sounds and images are collected, towards the making of a series of multimedia works (sound, radio and performance) addressing the impact and consequences of the construction of fences on the outer and inner borders of a theoretically borderless united Europe. www.fencing-borders.cc

Les Chronophages (F)
The French theater-dance company Les Chronophages starts a new research on memory and the palimpsest body. This second play, called MAZE, is an interdisciplinary project sailing between dance, music and visual arts. For that, the choreographer Ophelie Brunet invites the Colombian visual and sound artist Eliana Beltran to dive into layers of time. MAZE will be a visual and choreographic poem dedicated to the Gorecki’s 3rd symphony, re-imagined by the American saxophonist Colin Stetson. MAZE is an organic system where everything dances and vibrates (dancers, lights, objects, drums, screens…). In a circular device, the audience will be immersed into the musical work of Stetson. The whole body of everyone will be involved by this poetic and sensitive adventure. @leschronophages

Blockheaded or Fear ruins the Charakter [working title]
A circus project from Omnivolant (D)
A research to analyse possiblilities of political influence with artistical means. It is not possible to ignore anymore the shift to the right of our society. This is something we have to say, but how? Social enhanced uncertainty contributes to fear, and fear contributes to ressentiments and open racism. Talking about my fears, as a starting point, can be used to reflect this process. Fears that I have, while I am swinging or drop in eight meter hight. The handling of my fear, my concepts of overwinning fear, makes it possible to let go the rope ... for the next trick, for a controlled drop ... to reach out my hand to my neighbour ... to feel humanity despite fear and discrimination. To say it loud: Fear ruins the charakter. www.omnivolant.de
Our Circus – Your Stage
A circus project from Omnivolant and Pandoras Circus (D)
We will live the utopia of the travelling, the impossibility of flying, the transition of norms and the flagrancy of the moment in public. With the audience as witness, we will prove that our reality and society are only one, possible bluprint of manies. We want to make the impossible tangible.... to taste a different reality, for a short moment.

Preparing the SOIL for Culture
Art’sAcre – a SOIL laboratory for art and science.
The regional and participative project transforms a piece of arable land into an interdisciplinary and transcultural SOIL action space. The aim is to experience, research, develop and adapt with all senses and understanding in order to sharpen the perception of the relevance of SOIL and culture in society.
The 600 m2 piece of acre in Bröllin offers existing earth materials and space for practical, artistic and social research. On the Art’sAcre, all senses and minds experience, research, develop and adapt to sharpen the perception of the relevance of soil and culture in society.
At present, the rough landscape design of the KunstAcker is being carried out by rearranging the excavated material on the site. Further processing and detailed design of the various working areas on the KunstAcker will then take place in working meetings, workshops and art residences.

The cultural youth work is an important part of the activities at Schloss Broellin. Workshops on theatre, painting, and Hip-Hop take place each year, as well as an international youth camp and the production of a musical. These activites are attractive offers of increasing popularity for youth in the Vorpommern-Greifswald region, as well as youth from Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Norway, Litauen, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
The association develops and runs the youth projects in cooperation with other initiatives and institutions involved regional youth work. Bröllin hosts ever more visiting youth projects, and takes in volunteers through the Youth for Europe programme as well as regional interns. The programme is completed by themed youth camps, concerts with young musicians from the region, and finally international youth work.
Divided into regional, German-Polish and international projects, there is an attractive selection of yearly projects designed for youth from 13-25 years of age. Previous knowledge of artistic work is no precondition to take part. A presentation of the work – in Broellin or elsewhere – marks the end of the project.
Regional/German-Polish/International The cultural youth work in Schloss Broellin is first and foremost for the youth in the region. Due to the geographical structure of the region, not all young people have access to cultural activities. At Schloss Broellin, artistic projects and youth work lives side by side, and gives the possibility of encounters and inspirations that further the experiences of both. Here, the youth have the possibility to be seen on stage and through this to overcome some of their personal boundaries and discover new courage and power. Theatre work gives them the possibility to play desired and feared roles, and through living this play with otherness test their own identities. The content and themes of the performance is developed together with the youth group and according to what they find important.
The German-Polish projects contribute to a regional consciousness as a border region. Even though Polen has become part of the EU, there are great differences, both culturally and materially. To give youth across the borders a chance to meet each other, and to learn to know the “other” is a goal of the German-Polish projects: to foster tolerance, respect and curiosity.
The International projects bring together participants both from EU countries and outside the EU, with the idea of “furthering horizons” and break apart clichés about other cultures that are still prevalent today. By doing a project together in Schloss Broellin, youth experience that these stereotypes are not true. Schloss Broellin’s “alternative nature” – both in the new conference centre and in the old buildings – has an unfinished feeling that animates the ideas of the young people in an exciting environment for them to explore.
With an area of 53,000 m², Schloss Broellin offers spaces and studios of all sizes in and outdoor.
In addition to modern, functionally equipped and multifunctional rooms for workshops, seminars and conferences, a large outdoor area is available for participatory or experimental presentations.
Rehearsing spaces and studios of different sizes and equipment for dance, theater or music productions
