Luther: Dancing with the Gods

  • Pierre Boulez Saal Berlin Germany (map)

For its latest interdisciplinary project the Rundfunkchor Berlin is collaborating with Robert Wilson for the first time. A few weeks before the 500th anniversary of the Luther's thesis, the acclaimed American director brings a unique focus on the reformer: the new Pierre Boulez Hall at the Barenboim Said Academy hosts "LUTHER dancing with the Gods", a reflection on Luther's life and his influence on the arts.
