Ghost Dance

Das sagt der/die Veranstalter:in:

The Ghost Dance was a ritual created as a response to the great crisis suffered by the Indian civilization in North America in the late 19th century, after Western civilization had taken over the life of the Native Americans. The dance was done in hope of steering towards a great change: the end of the present world and beginning of a better one. In a time of hopelessness, the Native Americans danced in the belief that it would change their fate. The dance was effectively prohibited and is associated with the shameful extermination of the population. The ritual was one of the many desperate cries against the spreading wave of capitalism’s cruelty. The performance is a symbolic evocation of this ritual in defense of dying values. It is our act of hope at a time when the next turn of the wheel of history seems to be unstoppable. Every generation of naïve idealists experiences great sacrifices in the name of their values. This revolution of the heart has been the guardian and manifesto in defense of minorities and the oppressed. Ghost Dance is an action which combines music and theatre. The performance is an original piece by Teatr Brama, inspired by writings by Allen Ginsberg, Patti Smith, folk art of dying civilizations and anti-capitalist manifestos.
