We are delighted to present the programme for Sommerszene 2023: For thirteen days, from 12 to 24 June, Sommerszene Festival turns the city of Salzburg into one big stage. Fourteen selected projects invite you to theatre spaces, two different museums, Schlosspark Hellbrunn, a vacant shop and the historic old town.
In COME OUT Olivier Dubois creates a physical get together for 21 dancers from BODHI PROJECT & SEAD. In Ghost Writer and the Broken Hand Break by Miet Warlop, music, voice, lighting and a Dervish dance combine in a hypnot­ic spectacle. Bruno Beltrão sends a strong political statement to his homeland Brazil in New Creation, while Silvia Gribaudi examines her own biography with wonderful humour in Graces. There will also be another chance to see Alessandro Sciarroni, who revives a folk dance in danger of extinction in Save the last dance for me, and CieLAROQUE/Helene Weinzierl, who is inspired by the ambience of a stone theatre in ON THE ROCKS. On a meadow at Schlosspark Hellbrunn Agata Maszkiewicz presents her poetic light installation Zero to Infinity. In Panflutes and Paperwork, Norwegian choreographer and performer Ingrid Berger Myhre playfully explores the relationship between dance and music. In U.F.O.- Hommage to Katalin Ladik, Jule Flierl and Irena Z. Tomažin attempt to track down the legendary musician. In Reality Warping Jasmine Ellis analyses the relationship between her digital existence and analogue self. In Emancipation of Wonder Navaridas & Deutinger guide the visitors to the Salzburg Museum’s exhibition spaces through the eyes of children. gold extra & Koll­ektiv KOLLINSKI sozial present a down­to­earth and humorous social critique in WE CARE, while students of Applied Theatre research and explore potential acting strategies for the future in Playground for tomorrow.

The festival’s finale will get the whole city moving: in cooperation with the Museum der Moderne Salzburg, the Italian artist Marinella Senatore will choreograph The School of Narrative Dance – a vibrant parade through the streets and squares of the city’s historic centre with over one hundred participants.

We look forward to your visits to Sommerszene 2023.
