11th International Festival of Contemporary Dance

Get a coffee with Holective


The coffeemaker is on. Coffee pours. Kaffee! Women are sitting. Tattling. Klatsch! Kaffeeklatsch. Theater performances with dance, acrobatics and coffee.

„Ei! wie schmeckt der Coffee süße,
Lieblicher als tausend Küsse,
Milder als Muskatenwein.
Coffee, Coffee muß ich haben,
Und wenn jemand mich will laben,
Ach, so schenkt mir Coffee ein!“

"Oh! how sweet is the taste of coffee,
More delicate than thousands of kisses,
Smoother than nutmeg wine.
Coffee, I have to have coffee,
And if someone wants to please me,
Oh, give me some coffee! "

(J. S. Bach, Kaffeekantate BWV 211)

* The term Kaffeeklatsch, or coffee kneading, dates back to the 1st half of 19th century. At that time, women could not attend public cafés, so they began alternating in their homes where they drank coffee and chatted. Men then began to call this habit the Kaffeeklatsch.
