Grandbrothers

Palmengarten


With rods, straps, cables, microphones and electromechanical hammers attached to their prepared grand piano, the Grandbrothers Erol Sarp and Lukas Vogel create exciting contemporary piano music inspired by such experimental forefathers of the genre as John Cage and Steve Reich, just to name a few, as well as by newer electronic music. When Vogel adds effects and samples live to the sounds Sarp draws from the piano – when the hammers hit the strings and the wooden corpus and the mechanics therein in supplementary rhythms – the result is a technically, as well as visually astonishing interplay of inside and outside. As complicated as it may sound, this great mix of analogue and digital promises to be an ambitious, yet nevertheless chill listening experience carried along by cool rhythmic harmonies.

Michal Borczuch / Nowy Teatr

Frankfurt LAB


Cinema of Moral Anxiety

A mid-19th century American drop-out, fleeing civilisation. A Polish amateur filmmaker, who only wanted to record the birth of his child on Super 8 end of the 1970’s and suddenly encountered the political powers of his camera. Teenage flâneurs somewhere between Netflix, Snapchat and European Union, ageing actors with wiry bodies and failing claims to restitution: in this dynamic, concentrated theatre performance, the stage is a highway on which people and eras constantly meet, just as much inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden”, as by the early films of Krzysztof Kieślowski. The characters speed up, slow down or pause, as time becomes space. They keep asking themselves: How do we want
to live together, and did we even want to live together, or do we still want to live together?

Les Trucs/Karel Čapek

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


Der Krieg mit den Molchen

Naif, naif, triton trot and water choir! This or some such similar sound is that of a Pacific giant newt population rising to world power by threatening humanity. Distinct white noise, pelagic mewling, romance is dead! The future belongs to the newts! After their debut piece “Der Fleischgarten” at Mousonturm last year, the Frankfurt music and performance duo Les Trucs attempts a new interpretation of the literary classic “The War with the Newts” by Karel Čapek. Together with actress Beatrice Frey, multi-instrumentalist Bastian Hagedorn and all sorts of electronic devices, they flood the Mousonturm hall with text, sound and language fragments to tell Čapek’s fantastic story, written 1936 as one of the first science-fiction novels – a surprisingly prophetic ride through a world of today marked by exclusion, greed and power struggles.

Kristóf Kelemen & Bence György Pálinkás

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


Hungarian Acacia

The Hungarian acacia or ‘black locust’ came over the Atlantic to Hungary 300 years ago. Nowadays, it serves Hungarians, as the basis for honey and brandy, is a source of revenue and a symbol of national pride. When the EU introduced its regulations against invasive alien species in 2014, Viktor Orbán used it for his anti-Brussels campaign: “We send this message to Brussels! We will protect the country of Hungary, independent pálinka distillation, honey and the acacia!” As gardeners of a new myth, Kelemen and Pálinkás use satirical documentary theatre for activism in political happenings that redefine the acacia as a national symbol for an open society – so that all, who put down roots in Hungarian soil, can become Hungarians!

Nuno Ramos / Über die menschliche Natur

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


In 1971, Dutch television invited star philosophers Michel Foucault and Noam Chomsky to a TV duel. Framed by progressive pedagogical enthusiasm, the opponents negotiated their fundamental thoughts on “human nature”. What influence do humans have on their own histories and can individual actions lead to political change? Brazilian sculptor and author Nuno Ramos now brings the legendary debate onto the stage together with an internationally renowned music and performance ensemble and allows the basic situation to escalate spectacularly. With a firm knowledge of how protests of solidarity can fail, of critical power discourses and emancipatory visions, mythological seer Cassandra intervenes vehemently in the event. Over and over again, her final cries resound in the musical score of Greek composer Iannis Xenakis. Vocal and percussive cascades overlap in the composition overlap as they shift and open the monolithic battle of words between Chomsky and Foucault in a staged soundscape filled with sensual mockery, existential lamentation and passionate empathy.

Kim Noble / Pol Heyvaert / Jakob Ampe / CAMPO

Theatre Hall, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm


Wild Life FM

“This show will not fulfil your expectations. Not theatre, not a concert, and really nothing in between.”

Teenagers from Frankfurt, London and other European cities doing radio. Sloppy, foolish, scatter-brained, witty, angry – and so honest, that it hurts. Whether live in the Mousonturm theatre hall or on air, the participants of “Wild Life FM” confront the audience with their youth and their feelings of protest, boredom, abandon, doubts or desire. Wild Life FM is initiated and accompanied by musician Jakob Ampe, performer Kim Noble and director Pol Heyvaert. Yet while adults call the shots everywhere else, here everything depends on the ideas of the teenagers and what they ultimately bring to the stage. The show has been on tour now for over a year. At every stop, new people, ideas and music enrich the existing mix of original songs, interviews and actions, thus turning it into a true panorama of young people’s lives, thoughts and feelings across Europe.
