“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” (Rumi)
Five people. Each can only count on themselves. They send their messages into the room, but who answers? They are looking for dialogue, for something that could really be – but where is the mirroring counterpart? The view of the others seems to be barred, only sometimes a hint breaks through the distance. Fragments. A memory. Am I still intact?
Silent Heroes are today’s lone warriors in a world of abundance and a flood of communication, for whom the encounter with the living you becomes more and more a place of longing, hardly entered.

In Fuga (Part I)
For his newest piece the choreographer Samir Calixto takes on the 1st part of Bach’s masterpiece “The Art of the Fugue” and explores its stringent compositional variation and musical power. Bach’s last work is a “thinking in music” and unfolds its manifold poetry and tension in the ingeniousness of its construction. Along the same lines, Calixto focuses on thinking in dance and pursues the physical power of movement in the full devotion of the body. Thus, in the friction of the two arts, the complexity of our liveliness, transience and perfection unfolds before us.
