ANOTHER WORLD BASED ON THE MUSIC OF DEPECHE MODE – APRIL 21ST, 2013
In this performance, Depeche Mode’s world famous “Another World” Tour meets the writing of Japan’s most famous novelist Haruki Murakami. This dynamic marriage of text and performance takes in both H. Murakami’s “Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World“ and Depeche Mode’s brilliant flaire for music and image.
The performace is composed of different movements each of which is inspired by symbols, philosophy, visuals and, of course, energetic music. The sound evokes the movement, and all of this transports us to the world of dreams, lights, lasers and visual projections. Dancers become androgynous mechanical creatures diving into the space of mutant dreams and synthetic feelings. The characters portray unknown mines of our subconscious and project the path which we all choose without even realising. The futuristic performance exhibits a surreal world where there is no more space for natural feelings nor an acceptance of reality. People communicate, laugh, express their anger and even reproduce themselves not because they want to but because they have to do so. It is a world where there are no more true male-female relations – everybody looks alike and prefers hiding behind masks and faking emotions in order to avoid being hurt. In such a situation as this, we can only dream of a real, natural and free state. As the words of the Depeche Mode say, “Dream On… Dream On…”
