#bechange is a new chapter, a word of encouragement to all curious people, a touch of confidence in a world in disarray, and above all a musical invitation to get involved: to think, feel and create something new.
#bechange asks about change in each and every one of us and invites musicians and the audience to consider their perspective on the central questions of our time. All voices, whether loud or quiet, are heard in an open discussion of hope, guilt and responsibility in the face of the global ecological crisis.
»MUSIC AND SCENE BECOME ONE, THE COMPOSED ALTERNATES WITH IMPROVISATION. [...] A MOVING EVENING.«
With #bechange, Stegreif approaches the topic of sustainability from a wide variety of perspectives. Addressing the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), four premiere programmes are developed that focus on four historical female composers. Consisting of works from Wilhelmine von Bayreuth, Hildegard von Bingen, Clara Schumann and Emilie Mayer, four musical-visual productions arise, arranged by female recomposers of the Stegreif Orchestra.
