Neverendings: Season 2 – Daydreams for a Better World

Premiere in zwei Staffeln by Sergiu Matis
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017

In a Soviet Berlin, during a series of celebrations of 100 years since the October Revolution, selected people of the city are invited to meet five special comrades. They will commemorate this moment in history when utopia came to power with choirs and dances that glorify the fantastic achievements of the brave heroes during this golden age. The huge efforts, the immense struggles, the horrendous atrocities and the irremediable failures won’t be forgotten, but now it's time to plan the next 100 years of the neverending, permanent revolution. The bodies of the masses are choreographed into collective daydreams towards a better world.
