Musical material, space, sound, light, body movement of the musicians, stage elements: In MOVEMENT, which oscillates between concert, performance and installation, the performance elements are mutually dependent and cannot be thought of separately. In five scenes, MOVEMENT explores different approaches to sound production in the performance context, which is closely interwoven with the other scenic elements and vice versa. In a truly interdisciplinary approach, MOVEMENT facilitates a discussion on the conditions of production and reception in the contemporary art world.

We cordially invite you to join us for the online premiere of MOVEMENT on 15 April 2021 at 8pm. We will show a video production of the play recorded on 14.04. at the performance venue, the gymnasium of the E.S.V. Olympia in Cologne.
