Nowy Teatr, Madalińskiego 10/16

4-5.11.2016 godz.19:00

This theatre-for-the-ear is based on Thomas Bernhardt’s famous book Das Kalkwerk (The Lime Works). The story revolves around a failed attempt to compose the ultimate treatise on hearing, which the author considers to be the most philosophical of the senses. The metaphor of defeat becomes the narrative backbone of the book. The composition Kalkwerk/Studium on the other hand focuses on Studium – the treatise on hearing, a sense that escapes description and requires a literature-to-be-listened to. Listening to Bernhard is the only way to extract and expose his treatise on hearing. The performance will feature one of the most charismatic American vocalists and poets, Pete Simonelli, who will be accompanied by Hilary Jeffery, Ralf Meinz and Andrea Belfi.
