Of Sound in the Landing Page

Performance by Hester Reeve [CV], Wolfgang Mitterer [CV] // Franz Hautzinger [CV] i.a.


This piece will read and present live ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ as a sound-scape. The aim is to abandon words and the human voice and instead work with the ‘images of sound’ to be found in the book’s pages. This performance will allow the elemental aspect of ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ to make itself heard, it also brings ‘matter’ into the theatre in order to make the sounds. Whilst the aim is to create the sounds from ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra,’ to foreground the elemental matter held within the pages, I expect that the ‘image’of doing so will also ‘speak meaningfully’ to the audience via live performance of the sound making.
