Join us for our last Walk in LePARC of the semester with visiting artist Margo Zālīte! Following a residency at LePARC, she will share her current process and work through informal discussion.
Margo Zālīte describes her work as “moving pain paintings” that, in a free flow, balance between reality and imagination. Numerous opera productions have been created in the director’s interpretations. In Berlin these include G. Verdi’s La traviata, R. Wagner’s Die Walküre, B. Britten’s The Turn of the Screw, W. A. Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte, etc. She is passionate about architecture, anthropology, biology and expanding space-time with the help of music theatre. Rolling through countless mentalities and world-views is her answer to the dismayed Western Europe.
Festival FAVORITEN is the festival where Margo Zālīte is artistic director. FAVORITEN is the theater, dance and performance festival of the independent scene in North Rhine-Westphalia – has been held every two years in Dortmund since 1985. It is one of the oldest festivals of the independent performing arts in Germany and is aimed equally at the people of the city and region as well as at a nationwide and international (professional) audience.
