Unheard Of

Kareth Schaffer: Unheard Of
Dance performance

30. November 2017 8pm
01. December 2017 8pm

Tickets: http://www.tickets.per-aspera.net

The performance Unheard Of explores the craft of “foley” as a choreographic tool and perfor-mative practice, diving into the world of cinematic post-pro-duction: the manipulation of objects and bodies produces the illusory and ominous soundscapes of the movies. Everyday movements underlie the “realer than real” aesthetic of our most graphic images – even when these images are neither possib-le nor desirable.

Renovation

RENOVATION

The Delphi has been undergoing renovations since February 2017. But not to worry, the patina stays!. We will always protect and keep the interior as you know it.
The renovations are only for the inner organs of the building, a new ventilation system, a modern smoke extraction system for fire protection, a soundproof wall and new electrics. So while the Delphi will look the same, it will run even better than before.

“More than one species” is a dialogue about sexuality manifested and at the same time hidden in Georgian culture and social construct. It explores the perception of the human body, its freedoms and constraints, throughout the country’s last decades. The dancers and musicians come from the traditional as well as experimental dance and music scene. They bring their experience to create an installation, where working process is inspired by personal interviews, myths, legends, and images from the visual arts and real life.

The piece is part of a cross platform project The Mysterious Georgian Body. Through various artistic activities the project aims to reflect upon Georgia’s recent history of sexuality.

Don Giovanni in Sweden

Don Giovanni in Sweden
Cinema Cantabile

09. December 2017, 8pm

Tickets: http://www.tickets.per-aspera.net

Concept and Direction: Agnes Fabich & Franziska Guggenbichler Beck
Cinema Cantabile developed this unique format which combines opera and cinema. This time they dealt with one of the most multi-layered oeuvres in music history: “Don Giovanni” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Don Giovanni returns to his village and the story about passion, obsession and tragedy takes its course. All the characters on the screen do not talk or sing themselves. Opera singers who are present in the cinema theatre synchronize their lip movements.
It is up to the audience to decide whether it is the screen or the live music who is telling the truth.
For this performance, the pianist Richard Siedhoff will elaborate a special composition that is based on the music of Mozart’s opera.
After the performance, the film “Sherlock Jr.“ by Buster Keaton will be screened and accompanied by Richard Siedhoff.

Advent, Advent! At Puccini’s Toaster, we’re not feeling the Christmas Oratorio, rather we are in the mood for a song cycle. Our gift this holiday season in Schubert’s Winterreise, though a little different than you’ve seen it before – 24 singers of different voice types for each of the 24 songs: Baritones, tenors, mezzo-sopranos and sopranos together with one heroic pianist. Take a trip through Wintertime with our ensemble and be enchanted by songs about love and longing in all their colors.

Berührende Familiengeschichte mit märchenhaftem Ausgang, inszeniert mit Puppenspiel, Live-Musik und einem wandlungsfähigen Ensemble

In seinem versöhnlichen und gehaltvollen Spätwerk variiert Shakespeare auf beeindruckende Weise gleich mehrere seiner großen Themen, Rivalität und Eifersucht, Tatkraft und Intrige, junge Liebe und späte Erkenntnis zu einer bewegenden Familiengeschichte über Verblendung, Verirrung und Versöhnung.
Die märchenhaften Elemente setzt die Inszenierung mit lebensnahen Puppen um, die von den Schauspielern gespielt und gesprochen werden, während die dramatischen Szenen uns als höchst emotionales Kammerspiel vor Augen führen, dass Eifersucht und Machtmissbrauch zeitlose Phänomene sind, die nur durch menschliche Entwicklung transformiert und aufgelöst werden können. Das wandelbare, raffiniert eingesetzte Bühnenbild lädt das Publikum zur Fantasiereise und zum Eintauchen in verschiedene Welten ein, die Shakespeare auch hier wieder kunstvoll miteinander verwoben hat: Die Königreiche Sizilien und Böhmen, die sich trotz jahrelanger Freundschaft ihrer Potentaten plötzlich zerstreiten, stehen symbolisch für den Unfrieden in der Welt, der entstehen kann, wenn nur zwei Machthaber sich entzweien und die Folgegenerationen zwingen wollen, ihren Hass zu teilen.
Mit vier Schauspielern, Puppenspiel und Live-Musik wird das WINTERMÄRCHEN zu einer feinen, psychologisch genauen und dennoch in den theatralen Mitteln spektakulären Inszenierung.
