Longing for a perfect world, Hölderlin’s early romantic figure of Hyperion oscillates between manic-depressive and hallucinatory, euphoric states. His attempts to unite art, nature, love and revolution in harmony fail. Exhausted, Hyperion withdraws to a Greek island, where he devotes himself to writing letters. Ensemble Modern, Kiriakos Hadjiioannou and Fabrice Mazliah explore these attitudes, creating a dance and music performance in letter sequencies, a distorted adaptation of the novel which transforms the isolation of the hermit’s existence, his flights of intellect and lust and his clinging to hope after defeat into movement and sound.

Supported by Hessische Ministerium für Wissenschaft und Kunst sowie den Fachausschuss Tanz & Theater Basel-Stadt und Basel-Landschaft.
