Henrietta Horn

Theatre Osnabrück


In 2019 the Bauhaus celebrates its 100th anniversary and is the occasion for the three-part dance evening BAUHAUS | BOLERO at the Stadttheater Osnabrück. It opens with the reconstruction of Mary Wigman's group work DIE FEIER (1927/1928). In the mid-1920s, Wigman (1886-1973) not only dealt with the constructivist ideals of Bauhaus artist Wassily Kandinsky, but also with the theatrical experiments of the Bauhaus stage. Looking back, she wrote about DIE FEIER: "The absolute harmony of color, form, and line, of body and spatial rhythm, has hardly been as successful as in this work. As with Wigman's works "Le Sacre du Printemps" (1957 - 2013) and "Danse Macabre" (1921/26 -2017), Henrietta Horn and Susan Barnett are responsible for the recreation.

08 & 09. & 10 January 2019, 7.30 pm
Folkwang Universität der Künste / New Hall / West Wing / Campus Essen-Werden 
free entrance

For the third time in a row, the choreographer Henrietta Horn and the musician Matthias Geuting, both active at the Folkwang University of the Arts, invite dancers and musicians to the New Hall in the west wing of the Campus Essen-Werden together with current and former Folkwang dancers and musicians. For the first time, Folkwang professors Matthias Schlothfeldt (guitar) and Thomas Neuhaus (live electronics) will also be present.


Improvisation holds a certain degree of uncertainty - and this is the chance the experienced ensemble seeks to trace in order to create space for new views and ideas. Anyone who wants to experience a free evening, won entirely from improvisation, full of surprising, unforeseen and unexpected constellations, has the opportunity to do so during the one-hour performance entitled BLICKWECHSEL. The ability and willingness to change perspectives at lightning speed is in demand among performers and audiences alike, because all dance and musical actions are literally invented from the moment, developed and explored for their potential. Such a change of perspective creates relationships and non-relationships between sound, movement, space and audience and carries the risk and joy of incalculability. Nobody can predict whether dramaturgical arcs will emerge and grow, whether they will silence up or come to an abrupt end. But isn't the question of "success" itself again a matter of perspective?


Anyone who has become curious and would like to get involved in the art of the change of perspective at the beginning of the year is very welcome!

"Like a beast, not so much a monster as a creature that does not conform to any norm, this piece also questions the norms of the interaction of the disciplines with relish. "Untier" continues approaches of earlier works, such as "Kaiserkleider" and "Rotlicht" by Henrietta Horn, or works by the Theater der Klaenge (among others Modul|a|to|r, Hoereographien, Suite intermediale, Vanitas) with Thomas Neuhaus as composer, programmer and co-developer of the interaction concept.

Concept and production: Henrietta Horn and Thomas Neuhaus

Choreography: Henrietta Horn
Composition: Thomas Neuhaus
Light- Videodesign: Reinhard Hubert
Costume: Margit Koch
Dance: Sara Koluchová, Yen Lee, Pierandrea Rosato, Etienne Sarti, Ivan Strelkin

The music of "Untier" was commissioned by the Philharmonie Essen and supported by the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia. The event is sponsored by the Kunststiftung NRW. The Philharmonie Essen is organizing NOW! together with the Folkwang University of the Arts, the Stiftung Zollverein, the Landesmusikrat NRW and PACT Zollverein.
