The evening is filled musically with pieces that Mozart and Dvorak composed during the end of their lives, through the fifth voice in the string quintet. The musicians from Staatskapelle Dresden take ”Klangverdichtung” (”sound compression”) word-for-word and also invited, next to violist Piotr Szumiel who tours internationally with his ARD-award-winning Apollon Musagète, the Hannover-based author Nikola Huppertz. The author of children and youth books is award winner of the Evangelic Book Price 2022. Her book ”Schön wie 8” is nominated for the German Youth Literature Price. She wrote the libretto for a children’s opera which was performed at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein. A number of her poems have been published in literature magazines and anthologies.
From 7 p.m. on, Katja Erfurt (chairwoman of the association Villa Wigman für TANZ e.V.) gives insights into the history of the house, the work of Mary Wigman and today’s usage as space for performing arts.
This event is a beneficial concert. We kindly ask for donations for the renovation of the roof in the middle building of villa\wigman.
