The musical theatre piece “Frühling immer fort” (“Always spring”) is a cultural project with classical and chanson music involving song, dance, theatre and discussion in a kind of “Salonhaus” atmosphere that deals with the value of life; what we want people to consciously realize, both the serious and the humorous.
It offers the opportunity to consider one’s own life, but also to recognise our responsibility towards others, and to send a signal to those who are silent that we need to defend the value of life together. We are all connected through sharing this one world of ours, whether we want that or not, and we all have a shared future. We all have our own expressions of peace and creativity, and have several options to become more involved and active humans. We thus offer this piece of musical theatre, and the possibility to think and discuss it with us.
We are all human beings, we are all capable of meeting each other, we are all able to dance. So, let’s dance! As Omar Khayam wrote: we came from nothing. In the swirling turbulence, the stars turned to dust. They built a circle. And in the midst we dance.
These options are open to us: language, music, and dance. It is through them that we are to meet in between our worlds, in between our lines, in order to speak about, to sing about, to move around and to understand what we experience.
Lesja Ukrainka told us that what carries us and thus gives us power is clear confidence. ‘I hope against hope!’ Around this notion, expressed by Ukrainka as a 19 year-old – when terminally ill with tuberculosis – Friedrich Hölderlin, Ernst Toller, Hannah Arendt, Søren Kierkegaard and Wolfgang
Borchert have assembled themselves.
From Hölderlin’s spring to the spring of Borchert or that of Arendt, Spring for(n)ever. Between them lie two hundred years of progress and even more regression. Abuse of the human character and the escalation of the inhuman up to the present: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”… George Santayana.
As a multipurpose group of musicians, composers, actors, singers, dancers, and painters from Cologne, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Paris, Bratislava, and Lyon we seek to realize a project which dismantles the absurdity of current events and the continuous conflicts of interest in a make-believe world. At the same time we aim to provide an exit: memory and movement dance thoughts… bringing new expression to the sentiment expressed by George Santayana forever.
