– Human Requiem

As part of its series Broadening the Scope of Choral Music, Berlin Radio Choir is presenting Brahms’s A German Requiem  in a new light: under the title human requiem, Jochen Sandig and his team of the dance company Sasha Waltz & Guests are developing a “physicalization” of the work, integrating text, music, bodies and space. The chorus will be “staged”, with singers and audience set in motion, eliminating the separation of concert platform and auditorium – indeed abolishing the traditional concert experience.

Concept – Director: Jochen Sandig
Dramaturgy: Ilka Seifert, Sasha Waltz
Choreographer: Claudia De Serpa Soares
Sets: Brad Hwang
Lighting designer: Jörg Bittner

Marlis Petersen soprano
Dimitris Tiliakos baritone
Angela Gassenhuber, Philip Mayers piano

Rundfunkchor Berlin

Conductor: Gijs Leenaars
Co-conductor: Nicolas Fink
