Haus der Berliner Festspiele
The programme of MaerzMusik 2019 is here!
This year’s festival edition will focus on history and historiography as phenomena of contemporary politics. In more than 30 concerts, performances, film screenings, exhibitions and discursive events, new works by Jennifer Walshe and Timothy Morton, Olga Neuwirth, Justė Janulytė, George E. Lewis and Elaine Mitchener will be presented to the audience. The festival’s opening concert “The People United Will Never Be Defeated” (Frederic Rzewski & Horaţiu Rădulescu), the much-anticipated premiere of “TIME TIME TIME” (Jennifer Walshe and Timothy Morton), the nocturnal experience “useless land” (Catalina Insignares & Carolina Mendonça) and the screening of the silent film “Stadt ohne Juden” with new music by Olga Neuwirth will all take place at Haus der Berliner Festspiele. And, of course, the discursive programme “Thinking Together” will once again be hosted at this venue in 2019, this time with a conference on “Circluding History” and a wide range of workshops, reading groups and listening sessions.
Film, music, dance and theatre in the first six months of 2019
We will launch the first half of 2019 with the Berlinale film festival, which will be our guest from 8 to 17 February and turn our main auditorium into a cinema – a very special event! Furthermore, two major dance performances have been confirmed: Sasha Waltz & Guests will present “Continu” in March and Gauthier Dance // Dance Company Theaterhaus Stuttgart will visit us in April with “MEGA ISRAEL”. And we are looking forward to the programmes of the festivals MaerzMusik – Festival for Time Issues in March and Theatertreffen in May, as well as to the young artists who will be with us for Theatertreffen der Jugend, also in May!
