»Much evil happened on this world
but only little that gave the descendants so much joy.«
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1787
The grand gesture of farewell.
Women and children first.
Lightning bolt illuminating life.
The disappearance of the men.
Women assuming leadership.
Utopian dreams emerge.
Visions becoming true.
The horizon disappears.
The conditions reformulate movement.
Irina Pauls was born in 1961 in Leipzig and, starting in 1985, worked at the Landestheater (county theatre) in Altenburg. It was here, where she first caused a sensation as ballet master and choreograph before she founded Schauspiel Leipzig’s dance theatre in 1990. Until now she created for this company 13 full-length choreographies in which she always searched for the correlation between the various art forms and then made those an intricate part of her work. Due to Schauspiel Leipzig’s austerity programme it is planned to close the dance theatre, which incidentally is the only modern professional company in eastern Germany except for Berlin, at the end of the 1997/98 theatre season.
