In a continuation of the “MONUMENT” series, the choreographer Eszter Salamon, together with 9 performers, connects traces of Sicilian musical archives, mummification rituals of the Capuchin Catacombs in Palermo and historical references to the Sicilian revolution of 1848. “HETEROCHRONY / Palermo 1599–1920” – a HAU co-production – imagines a continuum between life and death, the cohabitation of the living and the dead, and creates its own utopian figure: a dancing, acoustic body. By juxtaposing different historical times, practices and memories, “Heterochrony” also reminds us of past collective struggles and questions what forms of resistance or desire for transformation inspire us today. From the “MONUMENT” series, “MONUMENT 0.7: M/OTHERS” was presented during Tanz im August 2019.
