radioACTIVE LOVE (Amoradi(a)ctivo, in Spanish) is a project that expresses the different sides of a woman’s love and desire: explosive, fierce, passionate, desperate, longing, rapturous and finally, as the anagrammatically encoded title itself suggests in Spanish, radioactive, active and addictive. Both in Gajo, by Nicolai Worsaae, and in Penelope. Eine Studie über das Warten, by Helena Cánovas, are intended to address the many facets of love, with a focus on the female perspective and the social role of women. In Gajo, the Danish composer presents short scenes in an improvised manner about the seductive, playful and instinctive love of a woman who is both author and interpreter. In Penelope. Eine Studie über das Warten, Spanish composer Helena Cánovas i Parés, in collaboration with dramaturge Maike Graf, presents various scenes of a desperate and passionate love of the mythological figure Penelope and explores the themes of waiting, fidelity and sacrifice.

The Danish composer Nicolai Worsaae takes on the setting of Amoradi(a)ctivo, Spanish poems by Natasha López, and composes a scene for each poem. The result is a musical composition in the form of a song cycle with seven scenes. The starting point for his artistic process of setting Natasha López’s Spanish poems to music is not only the words themselves, but also the fact that López is both author and interpreter.

In extinct.freedom, the TRIO vis-à-vis and Nikola Lutz come together to confront the drastic social consequences of surveillance capitalism. In her interactive installation extinct.algorithm, Lutz makes it possible to experience the inescapable superiority with which China digital technology into a weapon against its own citizens, whose historical first victims are the Uyghurs. In the concert Unendliche Freiheit?, the TRIO vis-a-vis and composer Alberto Bernal examine the loss of freedom through neoliberal pragmatism in mechanized worlds of production that degrade people to humane means of production. With Made in China/Epitaph Bernal recalls the Foxconn worker and poet Xu Lizhi, who only escaped the only escaped the slave-like working conditions by committing suicide. Foxconn is the main contract manufacturer for the largest producers of electronic products all over the world such as Apple, Amazon, Sony and Microsoft and is thus deeply interwoven with our everyday lives.

The Reiseandenken project deals with the idea of ​​creating art in public spaces in such a way that social reflection and interaction with society is achieved. Reiseandenken is presented as a musical trip of two times 4 minutes in the cable car at Südheimerplatz (Stuttgart), in which the TRIO vis-à-vis will play the music of Emil Kuyumcuyan. The journey begins in the present (Südheimerplatz) and leads back to the past (Waldfriedhof). Afterwards, travelers are invited to take a walk through the forest cemetery, where anonymous victims of the First and Second World Wars as well as prominent figures such as Robert Bosch are buried. On the return journey, travelers have the opportunity to interact with the music and engage with their current experience. The project aims to reflect on forgetting, death and war, as well as on people as performers of their own history.

Music: Emil Kuyumkuyan

Idea, concept and project management: Natasha López.
