SynopsisFrom September 19-26 the intercultural memorial project SOUND IN THE SILENCE was hosted by the borough of Altona, Hamburg and cultural center MOTTE e.V. in cooperation with the Gymnasium Altona/Hohenzollernring, Polish students from the Gymnasium Zespól Szkól in Koszalin and the concentration camp memorial Neuengamme. The location and its history were the starting point for the students and participating artists to touch on in an openended creative process. They could express their ideas and feelings through text, music and dance without pressure to perform. For one week the 14-17 year old students developed a performance in the brick factory located in the Neuengamme concentration camp memorial.
The teenagers were instructed by artists from various countries: Dan Wolf, Keith Pinto, Michael Hearst, Jens Huckeriede, Kijoka Junica and Indrani Delmaine.
