The Rapunzel Effect is a project of the dance company SZENE 2WEI. It is supported as part of the 2020 Cultural Summer program by the Innovation Fund for Art of the Ministry of Science, Research and Art in Baden-Württemberg.
"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let your hair down." Everyone knows this sentence from the well-known fairy tale. And everyone knows that the prince's call reached somehow the beautiful girl's interest up on top of the tower. The distance was not an obstacle for the two.
In this sense, the aim of the Rapunzel Effect Project is to design a series of site-specific, natural mixed-abled performances and thus bring the dance-theater to the people. The underlying impulse is the question: How can we create encounters in front and behind the "scenes" and live inclusion even in Corona times?, The project wants to evidence that distance is not an obstacle for culture.
