October 17, Toby Theatre-Newfields, Indianapolis, IN
Heartland International Film Festival: Cultural Journey Experience Germany Reception
This is a solo performance piece in the dadist tradition, influenced by Weimar Cabaret and songs of Kurt Weill. Dada was an art movement of the early 20thcentury the rejected logic and the reigning aestheticism, and embraced nonsense and irrationality. In this piece, the actor physically explores an onstage environment while interpreting 4 songs by Kurt Weill (2 English, 1 German, 1 French). Before each song she uses one word of the title to improvise a sound poem, as introduction to the interpretation of the song to follow.
