solo performance “Styx”
71st death anniversary of Else Lasker-Schüler

A song soiree that will play with dissolving the genre itself
in a dialogue – not interpreting – with the poetry of Else Laseker-Schüler …
condensing and opening spaces inbetween singing, speaking, sound movement,
and various specific orientations …
