A high-rise building becomes a stage!
In the centre of Chemnitz is the idyllic pedestrian zone called Rosenhof, which ends with a high-rise residential building built in the mid-1960s: over 15 floors there are more than 60 balconies in the direct vicinity. In the first Balcony Ballet these balconies become small stages used by their residents. It’s about ‘spook’ in the skyscraper, stories of being at home, living with a broad perspective and enjoying 26 square meters.
At the Rosenhof Chemnitz, the audience experiences an evening that relishly removes genre boundaries between spoken theatre, dance and installation, film, performance and popular theatre.
The project asks about the conditions of living with one another – and creates them at the same time.
