ICH.DIE.WIR
On 9 October 1989, around 70,000 people took to the streets in the East German city of Leipzig, despite the threat of a command to shoot. With candles in their hands, they peacefully demanded more freedom and democracy in the GDR – a decisive catalyst for the start of the Peaceful Revolution that finally led to the fall of the Berlin Wall. With the call “Wir sind das Volk” [We are the People] and “No Violence”, people gathered to march across the Leipzig inner-city ring road.

The dramatic events of Autumn 1989 encourage people even today. The remembrance of those days is kept alive by the citizens of Leipzig in many ways, in particular, the commemoration of 9 October. On this day, the focus will be on the Prayer for Peace and the Speech on Democracy at St. Nicholas Church, as well as on the Leipzig Festival of Lights at Augustusplatz.

As the year 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the introduction of votes for women, the participation and role of women in society, the citizen movement as well as the Peaceful Revolution shall be highlighted during this year’s Festival of Lights. The stage program of the Festival of Lights will be operated only by female artists from conductor Eva Meitner to the musicians of the “Freies Orchester Leipzig” (Free Orchestra Leipzig) over to the actresses who will all together form the scenic center of the production. Five actresses will hereby recite short parts of statements collected from contemporary witnesses from the civil rights movement. With one exception, all compositions performed during the Festival of Lights originate from only female composers.
