The term »stranger« lies at the heart of the artistic debate, to which Richard Siegal and his Cologne-based company Ballet of Difference at Schauspiel Köln are devoting themselves over the next two seasons under the title THE NEAR – FAR. Richard Siegal uses the particularity of the composition of his diverse company to get to the bottom of the description of this strange relationship between proximity and distance, both socially and artistically.

In the production, the Ballet of Difference dancers not only move to the music of the Augsburg-based percussionist Njamy Sitson, who originates from Cameroon, the 14 dancers also produce sounds with their own bodies. The different drum patterns of the different bodies overlap and create new, complex rhythms, thus reflecting the African tradition of polyrhythm.
