Film »Quiet«

A film by Lukas Zerbst based on an idea by Alexandra Morales

In »Quiet«, we accompany a dancer on a journey through nocturnal Bremen. Is he seeking silence, or indeed fleeing from it? In any case, he goes after the noise — not the obvious one, but the one you only hear when it is quiet. While he does, he escapes his city walk, again and again, by turning around, running, or jumping, and so he arrives in in several completely different settings: in a forest, on a demolition site, in a field. The soundscape that welcomes him each turn calms him down at times, yet at others, it instils restlessness, even mania. The film draws attention to what the often overheard, the inaudible, does to the body when it becomes loud, when it begins to drown out the everyday soundscape. »Quiet« was made as part of The Gone Together Project by Alexandra Morales and Unusual Symptoms, the dance company-in- residence at Theater Bremen.

After the film screening, the audience will have the opportunity to talk to members of the company Unusual Symptoms.
