PREMIERE: DIE FÜHRUNG (AudioWalk) // Morgan Nardi & Kathrin Spaniol // 1/6/22 // Nordpark Düsseldorf
“There are no innocent parks,” says Claus Lange, garden monument conservator and Nordpark expert. The Düsseldorf choreographers Morgan Nardi and Kathrin Spaniol take the audience on a walk through history, present and future: past the sculptures of the 1930s, the flower gardens of the 1960s. Accompanied by echoes of other possibilities, dystopias and utopias, the present of history becomes tangible. Equipped with headphones and smartphone, we walk through the park, listening to stories and history and seeing virtual possibilities. And again and again irritations appear in the park, reflections from the past and from other realities. In this way, the view becomes free for the landscape, the staged space and chance.
A production by Kathrin Spaniol and Morgan Nardi, co-produced by the FFT Düsseldorf. Supported by the Cultural Office of the State Capital Düsseldorf, the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Kunst- und Kulturstiftung der Stadtsparkasse Düsseldorf.
