Performance on the Werdersee
A group of stand-up paddlers glides over the water, their path crossed by a rowboat full of nose flutists. Just as a trumpet passes by in a fast Six, a tuba in a rubber boat enters the picture…On the occasion of the reopening of the Schwankhalle, we perform on Bremen’s nicest stage – the Werdersee. Neighbors, private paddlers, a rowboat club, enthusiastic trumpeters and other musicians have joined together to invent the as yet totally unknown genre of boat ballet. Under the direction of Katrin Hylla, a member of the Schwankhalle’s new direction team, a choreography is created for boats, paddles, arms, legs, trumpets, trombones and nose flutes. Of course, on the water.
