Kobalt Works


2069 is a commission by the Staatstheater Oldenburg and Tanztheater Nordwest, Germany. It is part of the performance evening “Triple Bill” featuring works by Arco Renz, Iztok Kovac and Omar Rajeh.

The year 2069 confronts two periods: 69 stands for the symbolic end of the love-and-peace-utopia of the 1960s counterculture with the deadly fights during the 1969 Rolling Stones concert at the Altamont Speedway Free Festival. 20 stands for the the years 2000, today, and the apparent absence of utopias.

Jimi Hendrix’ iconic Star Spangled Banner is the choreographic and musical starting point of this performance.
