Work commentary, Charlotte Bösling & Ole Hübner, 2017:
“Philomel with Melody” / a nocturnal remix / une production très tragique


the roles: the animal / the restless / the accompanying / the connecting / the connected / the foolish / the opposite / the innocent / the divided / the losing / the lost


a choir, silent


a protagonist


a narrator, along the dully stinking canal, night-drunk and moonsickled, feasting on the sight of the green sloshing liquid


white noise


one night


“Come, now a roundel an a fairy song!” (Shakespeare)


Designs


Palestrina


mask on / through the tunnel / striding stumbling / gawking / water


torn loose we float to the left & to the right along the color spectrum


a black night


drums / voices / Mendelssohn / radio


is repeating / clap


is repeating / clap


is repeating / clap


is repeating / clap


the media image compressed into a neutral-looking object that has become haptic and ingestible


and now listen to the rustling black night
