Der Himmel brennt

collectif barbare

Tatjana Werik and Vivianne Mösli wanted to create a song recital about love together. With Russian and Ukrainian romances - that was the plan before the war began. But now everything is different and a song recital about love alone is no longer possible. But borscht (or at least freshly roasted sunflower seeds) will be served anyway.
«The sky is burning» is a musical and poetic evening about women and war. A spark of light in the darkness with fragments of dreams, nostalgia and hope. A scenic concert where the audience sits on stage at small tables together with the performers Vivianne Mösli and Tatjana Werik and an ensemble of invisible musicians. An intimate and meaningful production where the closeness between audience and protagonists allows a togetherness. A programme in German, Russian and Ukrainian.
