euro-scene Leipzig’s new format at Schaubühne Lindenfels on 11 + 12 November 2022
UBUNTU CONNECTION is euro-scene Leipzig’s new format. 16 different artists from dance and new circus perform with and for each other on stage. With live music, they conquer the space in a battle from round to round and create the UBUNTU CONNECTION with the audience. After each round, a diverse jury decides who has most impressively harnessed the power of UBUNTU CONNECTION. The inspiring approach of “Ubuntu” embodies the longing for a constructive attitude based on respect, empathy, participation, change and hope. UBUNTU CONNECTION encourages a decolonial shift in perspective.
UBUNTU Connection will be moderated by choreographer and dancer Raphael Moussa Hillebrand. The Berlin-based Hip-Hop dance theater collective “Somɔgɔ” will curate 8 seats, and the other 8 seats will be awarded via open call. The participating artists will be announced shortly.
• on Friday, November 11, 16 artists will present themselves individually in a short solo, the live band will also introduce itself
• on Saturday, November 12, there will be three rounds with several sessions, in which the participants – accompanied by the live band – will conquer the space and create the UBUNTU CONNECTION with the audience
