In this performance, the audience will witness different states of human emotions and the lack thereof. Despair and hopes, from emancipation of female expression in the Romantic era to futuristic utopias of reproduction - a wide range of themes are interwoven and told in a non-linear narrative. These partly autobiographic experiences are presented from a female perspective. In addition to their own works, there will be works by young composers such as @Tatiana Gerasimenok (world premiere), @Sarah Nemtsov, @Beste Özçelebi and @Jue Wang as well as an arrangement of a song by Fanny Hensel/Mendelssohn. The music is combined with electronics and video as well as the human body as an instrument.
