What Remains is a new work created for the Wende Museum garden that focuses on the dual stories of Orpheus and Eurydice as imagined by the poet Ranier Maria Rilke, under surveillance by the Stasi police as depicted in the short story What Remains published in German in 1990 by Christa Wolf. Both movement and opera emanate from the female perspective and examine the notion of memory, the idea of forgetting and the struggle for individuality. This experimental work has been created by three composers + an opera for seven voices by Leaha Maria Villarreal, prepared trumpet by Sarah Belle Reid and flute and electronics by Justin Scheid and is danced by Joshua “Snubb” Dudley, Tess Hewlett, Santiago Villarreal, and Himerria Wortham. Choreography and Direction by Heidi Duckler inspired by The Wende Museum’s new exhibition,The Medea Insurrection: Radical Women Artists Behind the Iron Curtain.Return to full list >>
