Open For Everything Top / Details
Thu 16 Jun - Sat 18 Jun 2016

Musicians, performers and dancers explode out of a packed Louis Vuitton clad car and straight into a journey through the Roma communities of Europe in this unexpected celebration of life and music. From the prejudices, clichés, traditions, poverty and violence – they honour the dwindling communities that they themselves belong to.

“An evening full of lust for life and music” Wiener Zeitung

“On a journey across Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, she sought out the 17 Roma musicians, dancers and amateur performers who along with five dancers from her own company (from Israel, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and South Korea) have pulled off a weird, wild and wonderful show.”

Constanza Macras studied dance at the Merce Cunningham Studio in New York and founded her first dance company, Tamagotchi Y2K, in 1997. In 2003 she founded the dance theatre company Constanza Macras | DorkyPark in collaboration with the dramaturge Carmen Mehnert. In 2008, Constanza Macras’ production Hell on Earth was awarded the Goethe-Institut’s prize for the best German piece. In 2010 she received the Arts at MIT William L. Abramowitz Residency at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the German theatre prize Der Faust for Megalopolis.

The running time is approx 1 hour 40 mins without an interval.
