Die Geheimnislosen

Score Excerpt


For piano and video projection, 8′
From a text by Lukas Maisel.

First performance on 23 May 2014 by Laura Livers at the “Theaternacht” in Bern.


JAN, a cousin

The scene takes place in the entrance to a cabin or in a living room around a piano, a memory perhaps, or elsewhere.

Who is speaking? The piano? Tarek talks about clouds, Jan about fire. Sarah would rather play. Some words remain, printed, while others disappear into the air with the notes. Visual and auditory counterpoint from which a polyphonic dialogue between the characters gradually emerges. Will the secret be revealed from these confidences exchanged with cards on the table?
