It has been decided that the 2013 Aarhus Festival theme will be ‘Signs of Life - in a new reality'
These days, we wake up to a reality that is changing - not just small shifts, but in some areas in the very core: Opposites are dissolving, habits are being challenged, connections are disintegrating, language is being eliminated and ingrained insights no longer make sense.
Nothing is as it was. It can seem as if life as we know it no longer wants to know us.
Aarhus Festival 2013 will look for a language that can put the life that takes place in the current reality into words: The transition period between something known and something still unknown. A language that can help us understand our age and give us suggestions to why we live the way we do and how we can come closer to an explanation and direction that points towards something even more beautiful that what we came from.
