The choreographer Louise Wagner has named her performance-experimental arrangement a musical sound installation in movement; it was conceived in collaboration with dancers-choreographers, musicians and perception researchers as her contribution to the Wagner Year.
The music of Richard Wagner is renowned for its “physicality”; in the sound installation it takes the stage as subject of an artistic and scientific investigation of perception. Performers and musicians become directly involved in the psychological and physical effects. They move through a Wagner soundscape and make the experiences of their body hearing visible.New stories are created. No more action or myths, but energies, architecture, structures.The production of the Kunstfest Weimar GmbH receives its first performance in the Akademie der Künste in Berlin.
