Character.« Whether writing or organizing: everyone was able to contribute as he or she wished, to prepare the concert on May 15, 2022, as part of the Ludwigsburg Festival.

The mass as a genre of church music has a long development behind it: over the course of time, initially monophonic chants developed into increasingly complex musical works with the goal of an artistic aesthetic. The strict liturgical binding gave way to the establishment as an independent musical genre – a process that we would like to explore in more detail using the masses of the three major B’s as examples.

Sasha Waltz is one of the most important choreographers of our time. Like hardly anyone else, she has managed to continue the historical heritage of expressive dance and modern dance, which is so strongly rooted in Germany, on the international stage, while at the same time questioning and renewing it through influences of postmodern dance. By taking a look at her creative history, we want to explore more closely the dialogue in which she allows the physical forms of dance and the spatial forms of architecture to enter.
On 10 July, the Freiburg guest performance »THE 3RD BOX« comes to Ludwigsburg. The four performers let the audience take part in their journey of coming to terms with their gender and their identity and thus want to encourage self-reflection.

Kit and Balthazar are performers in »THE 3RD BOX« and lead the workshop together with Gary Joplin. In the interview, they give insights into the process and tell us what was and is close to their hearts.

It is actually a very nice tradition when artists are presented with flowers at the end of a concert. In the spirit of sustainability, however, we would like to express our gratitude in the long term and instead of bouquets we give away certificates of tree and flower meadow sponsorships.
