XX Trilogy 2nd. part
“Kölsche Mädche” is a surrealist performance, a danced game about faith, innocence and death, about the power of courage and brutality.
The most famous holy woman in Cologne serves as the protagonist: Ursula! Patroness of Cologne, the virgins, the youth, the teachers, the University of Cologne and others In the 16th century, eleven flames were added to Cologne's coat of arms as a symbol for the virgins.
Is the first part of the „XX trilogy“ - Dance theater on the traces of the female power. About women in power positions, women in politics. The stories of three powerful Cologne women were chosen to highlight the themes of "Women and Politics", "Women and Religion", "Women and Economy".
„No music on earth
Can ever compare with ours,
Eleven thousand virgins
Venture to dance,
Saint Ursula herself laughs to see it,..."
