ZUHÖREN

ZUHÖREN

The company Sasha Waltz & Guests has been working with people from all continents for over 20 years and has gained important intercultural experience on tours around the world – also in listening and listening to each other. Against the background of the refugee crisis in 2015 and shaped by personal encounters, Sasha Waltz and her company created the format »ZUHÖREN – Third Space for Art and Politics« in spring 2016. Since then, four editions of »ZUHÖREN« (Listening) have invited people to engage in different discursive formats such as workshops or discussion rounds, in community-building activities such as dancing or cooking together, but also in artistic form in performances, films and concerts, to discuss urgent socio-political themes, to talk – but also to act together.


»Listening is unfortunately often understood as a passive act, but it is actually a very important and active act. For the conductor Claudio Abbado, it was the most important means with which he committed his musicians to making music themselves. With »Ascolta!« – »Listen!« he demanded to listen to the others. He was convinced that only then would we make music together and not just produce a collection of tones. This also applies to actors, singers, dancers and all performers on a stage. Without active listening, there is no artistic unity. And on the political stage? Again, we won’t get very far unless we learn to listen to ourselves again. Only when we understand others, have listened to their stories and motivations, will we find an active community. Integration is a dead end. By listening we create belonging – one of the foundations of our civilization.«
–Jochen Sandig–

»Only by listening does what is specifically individual step back and open up to a new theme, a new thought, a new world. Listening implies a readiness to engage with another’s thoughts, interpretations and perspectives. In an era when a fragmented public sphere encourages people to propagate their own convictions as loudly and uninhibitedly as possible, simply listening is already almost a subversive act. Shared experience of concentration – rather than individual experience – has also become rare, as the common experience of a common world erodes and its conditions and possibilities are undermined.«

–Carolin Emcke, Süddeutsche Zeitung 2016–
