»A journey to the roots«

We are very pleased to hear that an article about our project was released in the feuilleton of the Süddeutsche Zeitung on January 3rd. The journalist and music critic Helmut Mauró had temporarily accompanied Marc Sinan and Markus Rindt on their research-journey through Kazakhstan in April 2013. Based on this trip, Mauró reports on this oil-rich territory, its people and the decline of the traditional music culture.

Rehearsals in Berlin

The second rehearsal week with the turkish choreographer Aydin Teker starts on Saturday December 7th and takes place on the rehearsal stage of the Maxim Gorki Theatre. Aydin Teker’s unconventional approach transforms soloists, such as the guitarist Marc Sinan, the singer Jelena Kuljić, the double-bass player Jun Kawasaki, the sub-contrabass flute player Sascha Friedl, into objects of choreographic intervention. A first run-through is planned on December 18th.

Rehearsals in Tashkent
