lettera aSeptember, 2007
Britta Pudelko’s solo Lettera A. is inspired by the mysterious and poetic lyrics of LETTERA AMOROSA by the French poet René Char (1907-1988). Char’s text illuminates the union of the human soul with the cycle of seasons. The epicenter of the text is everything that is absent: the opponent, the summer, and the easiness. Oneself is circling around oneself, searching for a beginning, an echo, and an exit out of the labyrinth.Dance, sound and pictures form a mosaic showing different layers of this cyclical journey, giving space for dreams, hopes and a design for life. The 60′ piece Premiere was 13th of November 2008 at Dock 11, Berlin
During the three parts three different hums create the atmosphare to the main instrument, which is the sound produced through dancing.Other music is created from fieldrecordings working in an energy exchange with the happening on stage.
