LUNA PARK / Kosmas Kosmopoulos
Dance Performance “Beautiful Landscapes“
Life could be over by tomorrow. Time for a memento mori. But could everything have turned out differently if we had only known more, believed more, wanted more? BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPES (Blühende Landschaften) by LUNA PARK/Kosmas Kosmopoulos is a breathless course over green fields of rubble.
A wailing, aggressive chorus of human and nonhuman voices sings their disappointment at all the unfulfilled promises made by the West and is struck down by the echo of its own failure. All of it ends in a ceremony of tears. But are the tears real? Or just for show? BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPES sets out in search of adequate grief and the art and grace of mourning.
