How does the forest sound? How did it sound in the past? And how will it sound in the future? Do you hear the forest lament when it dies? Or is there even hope for a better future in the forest? This year's scenic project of the Mainz Theater Studies (JGU) takes art back to one of the most important places of inspiration: the forest - one who suffers and at the same time bears hope in climate change.
Together we set off on an extraordinary adventurous hike. Spanning four varied kilometers along the World Heritage Climb, musical selections from the times of the Rhine Romanticism, from Eastern Europe and from the present day awaits you, all sourcing the forest as inspiration. It is a combination of musical and theatrical events as well as digital audio elements. The forest is made sensually perceptible both as a natural and artistic space and invites you to encounter nature and yourself.
Our star guests ensure top-class musical performances: Soloists of the Philharmonische Staatsorchester Mainz (Adrian Arroyo - horn, Victor Bustamante - violin, Kristina Edin - double bass, Therese Geisler - flute), "The Bingen Jazz Edition" with Thomas Bachmann (saxophone), Sebastian Laverny (piano), Ralf Cetto (bass) and Alex Funk ( drums), as well as Rut Bántay on cello (Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz), Gernot Blume on harp and Alejandro Carlevaro on guitar.
