Angels over Bad Hersfeld
As part of the festival EIN ANDERRER SOMMER. Bad Hersfeld - City of Stories
Angels appear life-size on roofs and balconies along the pedestrian zone of Bad
Hersfeld. They have poems, stories and curious angel miracles in their luggage. Here sails a
letter down to the people, there a basket with angels' wisdom is let down. On the ground there are curious angel finds to be seen in shop windows.
A cooperation between the Bad Hersfeld Festival, the ANU Theatre, the town of Bad Hersfeld and its citizens.
This summer everything is different. Bad Hersfeld becomes a city of stories. Actors, musicians, singers and visual artists will play, tell stories, paint and make music in very special places in the town: in the Abbey ruins, in the Abbey Park, in the town church, in the streets and squares, in the Johann Sebastian Bach House, in the book café, in the museums in the Abbey and in the spa gardens.
World literature and reports, dime novels and poetry, works by great composers - from classical to jazz - will be heard and seen, monologues, dialogues, scenes, reports, exhibitions, installations, comedy and tragedies, as well as very private stories and historical events from the town of Bad Hersfeld.
"I am delighted," says Festival Director Joern Hinkel, "that many artists who were supposed to be on the big stage with us have spontaneously agreed to take part in our 'other summer'. There will be no Bad Hersfeld Festival this year 2020, and the Festival fanfare will not sound. The festival staff have joined forces with many cultural workers from the city and the region, together we will roll up our sleeves and see how we can make the best of the situation."
Saturday, 08 August: 11.00 / 13.00 / 15.00 hrs
