The docu-dance-performance is a cooperation project between choreographer and dancer Jule Flierl and visual artist and musician Mars Dietz. They will explore the history of uranium mining in the Saxonian Erzgebirge-region and its radiating impact on landscape, society and individual bodies. Flierl and Dietz will choreograph a movement choir and design a space where a local focus on the Wismut Corporation enables reflection on global questions of the exploitation of landscapes and bodies.

When David Bowie was featured in Nicolas Roeg’s film “The Man who fell to Earth” in the role of Thomas Jerome Newton, many viewers felt like the British singer was simply playing himself. Forty years after the film, Bowie planned to dedicate a new project to Thomas Jerome Newton: a sequel to the story in the form of a musical. He outlined a vision of Newton, ageless and unable to die, drinking gin, devouring synthetic sweets and watching television. Around him, real and imaginary figures perform scenes from Newton’s past, turning the present into an enigmatic and confusing “fever dream”.
