Variété, concert-spectacle fuer Artisten und Musiker
music by Mauricio Kagel – fantastic-dramatic action Marina Spreafico
Show for 6 instruments and variety artists
“The starting point for the composition of this Concert-spectacle was the intention to write a piece of music that would try to establish new means of connection between variety acts and their musical accompaniment. According to the composer, this connection could be paraphrased using the expression théâtre trouvé: new musical passages without links with plastic contents are compared with other closed forms of performance: out of this comes ‘Music-Theater.’”
(from Werner Klüppelholz)
Starting out from this “upside-down world” I conceived, together with the actors, a fantastic-dramatic action composed of 15 closed numbers, reminiscent of variety theater.
