Sun & Sea

The KunstFestSpiele present from 30 May to 1 June at the Lutherkirche the winner of the Golden Lion of the Biennale di Venezia: a music-theatrical long-term performance on a beach.

After winning the Golden Lion for the best national pavilion at the Biennale di Venezia, Sun & Sea was one of the most internationally acclaimed works of art of 2019, and now comes to the KunstFestSpiele for its German premiere.
Imagine a beach: the burning sun, light bathing costumes, sweaty people lazily lounging on a mosaic of towels. A few children occasionally shrieking above the calming rhythm of the waves. Along with the rustle of plastic bags you can hear the hum of an aeroplane or speedboat. Then a chorus of everyday songs. Songs of boredom, songs of almost nothing.
Sun & Sea is an extended music-theatre performance that takes place on an artificial beach. Holidaymakers sing their everyday stories in the midday sun, while the audience watches the goings-on from above. Gradually these mundane events and songs multiply into a wider picture reflecting the dramatic changes to our planet’s climatic conditions. The lightness of the image conceals an urgent message: crises develop gently and quietly – like a pop song on the last day of the earth.
