The Lublin Dance Theatre is delighted to invite everyone interested to Susanne Linke & Renegade’s performance Ruhr-Ort. Ein Tanzfonds Erbe Projekt which will conclude the 19th Dance Theatres Festival. In 1991, Susanne Linke created her legendary dance theatre piece Ruhr-Ort; in it she focused on the men?s work in the steel factories and mines. Physical exhaustion became dance and formed impressive images of the world of labour in the old Ruhr region. The extraordinary choreography returned on stage. Susanne Linke is reconstructing Ruhr-Ort at Schauspielhaus Bochum together with the dancers of the Herner Street-Art Kompagnie Pottporus/Renegade. This will be a unique meeting between street art and dance theatre, between the old and the new Ruhr region, between dance history and contemporary urban art.
During the festiwal, the show will be presented twice, on Tuesday and Wednesday (11-12 November, 8 pm) at the Drop Forge (ul. Mełgiewska 7/9).
