Im Feld #5

Music theater performance for ensemble

Three works from German composer Carola Bauckholt are combined as three men wait for doomsday. Gloomy predictions have driven them to entrench themselves in a basement room, creating a highly unusual sense of urbanisation. The program centres upon ‘Der gefaltete Blick’ [The folded view], a dramatic miniature in the style of Samuel Beckett. Fragments of a cantata are mixed with noises from everyday objects and fantastical voice scraps to create a unique theatrical experience in which music and drama inextricably merge.
