Reflections on “Summer Time in Berlin”:
...finally it’s summer in Berlin. The contrast to winter couldn’t be more pronounced.
Berlin awakes from the terrible cold, the sun transforms its people. This is Berlin: real, easy-going, open, communicative, and even... optimistic.
A miracle of nature?
A day: a glorious sunrise, a sun-filled morning, suddenly lively winds awaken and turn into a thunderstorm, flashes, thunder and all. It floods us unexpectedly… The quiet after the storm is motionless, speechless, asleep...
(Music: “Allegramente”, Piano Concerto in G major, Maurice Ravel)
...the sun shines again: renewed hope, new possibilities, new people, new experiences.
Everyone is searching, yearningly and full of illusions. Despairing alone, together, in a group, with everyone... powerful? ...weak? ...meaningless? ...confused?
(Music: “Allegro”, Concerto Grosso in B minor, Vivaldi)
Two ladies – strangers, not in their neighbourhood – are searching for something. By accident their pathways cross. They see one another but don’t recognise each other, yet a familiar look, memories, new music – Reggae – and dance deepen their friendship.
(Music: “Jamming”, Bob Marley)
At night: the party... and Berlin dances... Latin!... (Music: “Let's get loud”, JLo),
celebrates the Golden Twenties (Music: “Minor Swing”, Manouche)...
and the disco sounds of the 80s (Music: “Celebration”, Kool & The Gang and more).
