Performing John Cage's Song Books in collaboration with Natalia Pschenitschnikova
Performing John Cage’s Song Books is a collaboration work with Natailia Pschenitschnikova, a singer and composer. This was a commissioned project which we were expecting to combine performing John Cage’s Song Books with the site specific performance area. We did select pieces from the book that we consider fit to the history and landscape character of Timmelsjoch, northern part of Bolzano, Italy closed to the border with Austria.
We collaborate within the pieces, reinterpreting, reading and apply the action according to our choices. These are among them : N22, N69, N30, N13 N49, N49; N36, N82,N46, SFV: 22; 79
N11, 59,67,85, N17, 91,, 27, 71, N90, N23, 27, 73, SFV: 34;35;54;91
Dealing with the situation of the areal, we presented our performances along with the public parcour. We as well as the public, moved from one place to another place in the mountain area. The performances were presented in two days programs.
Duration: 20 – 30 minutes each action, 2 days presentation, 8 hours per day
