come together – rainy days 2020

20 years of rainy days – 15 years of rainy days at the  Philharmonie!

The festival rainy days features encounters in their many forms: «come together»!

In our polarized Western societies, in which more and more people perceive difference as threatening and retreat to their small «bubbles», encounters have gained ever more importance. Yet the arts have always enabled, documented and been inspired by encounters: with other arts and artists, styles, experiences, emotions, world views, places, cultures, eras – the coronavirus crisis has made us feel this even more emphatically.

rainy days invites the audience to see, hear, expe­rience and share encounters of the most diverse kinds on a broad range of contexts in 22 concerts, performances, installations as well as artist talks and a conference.

They include the dense interweaving of visual arts, film, performance and music in the works by William Kentridge and François Sarhan. The intense artistic and human relationship of a com­poser to performers. Concerts for only one listener. The solitude of digital worlds. Classical Persian music in dialogue with Western baroque and con­temporary music. Experimental electronic music from Africa. A live sound walk with more than 100 young musicians.
