Review: Winter Festival 2017
A wonderful festival has ended.
Under the motto “We, all”, Tollwood appealed for the commitment to a democratic, pluralistic and open society and peaceful coexistence. The motto was artistically implemented, among other things, in the ice sculpture “Demokratie” (democracy) at the festival entrance, the “We, all” Christmas tree with more than 150 human figures by Adam Stubley or the “Living Room Democracy” designed by Anna Allkämper. The “Weltsalon” presented itself as a “stage of democracy” also dealing with a pluralistic society in 14 installation rooms.
In the Grand Chapiteau, the Canadian Cirque Éloize impressed the visitors with “iD” and a breathtaking mix of acrobatics and urban dance.
