The artists Belenish Moreno-Gil and Óscar Escudero, authors of SUBNORMAL EUROPE, debate with the philosopher Luis Sáez Rueda (University of Granada), author of El ocaso del occidente, who in his book diagnoses the decline of the creative forces that underlie the western interpretation of the world and the modus operandi of its civilzation. Sáez Rueda maintains that “the only way to overcome the darkness of this decline is within and through itself”. The thinking of the philosopher from Granada finds itself at the centre of reflection on SUBNORMAL EUROPE and will help to throw light on this new production.

Mantiene que “hay que atravesar desde dentro esta noche del ocaso”. El pensamiento del filósofo granadino se encuentra en el centro de las reflexiones en torno a SUBNORMAL EUROPE y ayuda a la ilustración e interpretación de esta nueva producción.
Many a "NEW Return" is appearing quicker and more unexpectedly as previously thought. Due to the omnipresent effects of the corona crisis we will, together with our collaboration partners, react in a flexible manner. The Munich Biennale will become a dynamic festival in Munich and elsewhere.
Operations have been interrupted in almost all of the theaters and opera houses. This also affects our preparations and rehearsals. For this reason we have reached the following decision: world premieres that cannot be performed in Munich in May 2020 will celebrate their premieres elsewhere or in Munich on a different date.
We are planning to publish the Biennale program in May 2020 in order to conceptually present the entire festival. The Munich Biennale will begin as a physical festival at different locations. The theme and spirit should culminate in the "Salon of Wonders and Views" as a connective element over a long period of time at different locations and always viewable via a live stream. In this manner the issues of new music theater and the Biennale theme "Point of NEW Return" will be reflected and perpetuated.
The advance sale of tickets has been postponed until further notice. We are in close consultations with our partners and the responsible authorities, we will keep you up to date on our website, our social media channels and the newsletter.
