“Klavierstück” is a duet of a piano and a human body, where Felix M. Ott explores
exhaustively the possibilities of this relationship and its boundaries.
Between internal confrontation and fearful embrace, visual worlds and soundscapes are created that reveal the inner lives of both.
A musical evening in a moving way.
Felix’s research began with a recording that had been lost for decades, recently discovered by chance in the estate of Dadaist Richard Huelsenbeck, marked the starting point of the research. The audio captures artist Rafael Montañez Ortiz destroying a piano with an axe at the London ‘Destruction in Art Symposium’ on 10 September 1966 – a rare document of an art-historically important symposium where the art of deconstruction became visible for the first time as an international trend.
Premiere: 24-25. October 2018 at Tanzfabrik Berlin
A production of Company F.M.O, supported by apap-Performing Europe 2020, cofunded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and Archivo Conz. Supported by Collegium Hungaricum Berlin.
