The latest backsteinhaus production!

Theater Rampe, Stuttgart
13.-14. & 18.-21. Oktober 2017
If man would fell on his hands, walk as a quadruped, let grow his fur and stand and howl, an evolutionary step would be taken. A piece for a speaker, a conductor, a taxidermist, a musician and trucker, a choir, five to six dancers and one child. As wolves they dance back to a Europe from which they have been expelled for a long time. Their territorial struggles, disputes about the order of rank and the tender care for the family can be observed at close range and in the wild.

To the newest backsteinhaus production ›Wolfgang‹ we and the Theater Rampe like to invite you to two workshops. Howling, impressing, marking, caring – in ›Wolfgang‹ dancers and others explore how to walk like a quadruped and how to move in between the boundaries of wolfish and human. Selected movement material of the ›Wolfgang‹ choreography will be the starting point to deal with the topic and finding individual forms.
Workshop fee: 30 € // Reduced for professionals: 15 €
A backsteinhaus production
›Headless‹ is a parable for the time of general uncertainty, counter-defense and its consequences. It is a positioning exercise and a song against fear. Based on a bad body posture, and the head as a body’s own resistance, the choreographer Nicki Liszta developed together with the dancers this couple dance.

We were invited to the Autorentheatertage in Berlin!

Rubber lays the ground behind the history of globalization: colonialism boomed in the 19th century. The European opera house in Manaus testifies to this. And a small car entrepreneur in Germany, struggling with the crisis, is trying to live on. And the oceans sink in plastic. A climate symphony for a drowning dance ensemble, an exhausted symphony orchestra, two survivors in climatic capsules, and an average white Central European family.
The latest coproduction of backsteinhaus produktion and Theater Rampe!
With Sibylle Berg’s ›How to sell a murder house – A danced real estate portfolio‹, the director Marie Bues and the choreographer Nicki Liszta imagine drastic explorations of reality: while the city sinks in the civil war, a man saves himself in the vacant house on the Hill as last resort. But even up here the madness of the big city, the crisis of the corporate and financial world and the failure of the white, western, heterosexual man can not be stopped … An abominable evil and at the same time tragic horror trip!
Rampe tanzt: Since the season 2016/2017 backsteinhaus produktion and Theater Rampe collaborate!
The season will start with a production directed by Marie Bues and Nicki Liszta. The awardwinning play ›paradies fluten‹ written by Thomas Köck.
Excerpts from an article from the Yearbook 2015 of ›Tanz – Journal of Ballet, Dance and Performance‹ by Angela Reinhardt:
»Nicki Liszta’s dance hurts. In a very real sense, their dancers and performers throw themselves on the stone floor, popping against walls, hovering over glass flakes. In Stuttgart, where the free scene, in spite of patient parrots through the city, regularly falls next to Ballet Comedy and Gauthier Dance, the choreographer sets a real counterpoint apart from the usual off-locations. …
