What Remains: Online Screening and Discussion with the Wende Museum
September 3, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join Heidi Duckler Dance and the Wende Museum online for a screening and artist talkback of What Remains, a live experimental production created by HDD and filmed in the Wende Museum’s garden back in December of 2019. Both movement and opera emanated from the female perspective and examined the notion of memory, the idea of forgetting, and the struggle for individuality.
What Remains was a new work created by Heidi Duckler Dance for the Wende Museum garden that focused on the dual stories of Orpheus and Eurydice as imagined by the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, and the short story What Remains published in German in 1990 by Christa Wolf about the role of the Stasi (secret police) in East Germany. This experimental work included the work of three composers – an opera for four voices by Leaha Maria Villarreal, and music for flute, double-bell trumpet, synthesizers, and sundry electronics composed and performed by Sarah Belle Reid and Justin C. Scheid. Choreography and Direction by Heidi Duckler and inspired by the Wende Museum’s exhibition The Medea Insurrection: Radical Women Artists Behind the Iron Curtain.
