THE SECRET RACE. A PLAY ABOUT THE NSA in Washington/DC
"I can feel for the NSA. I understand what it is, and where it is. They made the same choice all of us made, to work for the security and well-being of their nation. Then they started to become more important in recent years and it got out of control, and the apparatus got bigger and bigger. Now they have no choice. They have to keep hiding, to keep trying to convince people to move on. They can't go back. They can't tell the truth. They are trapped."

CODA in Düsseldorf, Dortmund, Schwerte
The Theater der Klänge ensemble from Düsseldorf takes up the aesthetic stage language of the Bauhaus from the 1920s and develops it into an inter-medial form of its own. It is now working on a new dance concert that will premiere in January 2014. In "CODA - Bach Cello Suite in C Minor" two dancers, a cellist, a video artist, a electronic musician, a choreographer, and a composer/director gauge the boundaries between the arts, with the music of Johann S. Bach determining the time and form.
