The day before you got it cleaned up. In the rehearsal room of the theater Winkelwiese a little bit of Chaos, but still. Cable lying around on the floor, on the table is a kids sewing machine is a construct, in addition, a kind of organ pipes. A Chrüsimüsi everywhere. In the middle of it: the actor Nico Delpy and Urs Jucker. You have crafted here is a world, which is a novel: Blaise Cendrars' "Moravagine", first published in 1926. A monster work of Swiss literature. With a real Monster in there.
The Chaos has a System. "Why do you want to bring in everything always all right? And what is the procedure? There is no truth," writes Cendrars, "there is only the fact ... the life." And now you have to stop a bit of the air, what is this life, in this novel, namely: "crime, theft, jealousy, Hunger, lies, fuck juice, stupidity." Oops.
No Easy history
And you're not where you wanted to go, actually: in the word tinkle. And coming up in despair. How can you tell such a story, of this Monster, Moravagine, which is drawn out into the world, to get them angry, in pieces? From time to time, to slit this man, 1.48 m tall, also a woman the belly. How do you talk for God's sake, on the stage?
Nico Delpy and Urs Jucker, for the drama school in Bern, have a solution. Let us in its first joint project, the Sound of this novel hear. The sounds come from objects: by the sewing machine, the organ pipes, from the bed. Actually, from the whole room. We hear the Echo of the tremendous action – and strengthened.
Experimental theatre par excellence
Martin Hofstetter comes into play. He is a sound engineer, Sound engineer and knows his way around Pickups and microphones. With Pickups you can remove the vibration of any object. And through them, each subject begins to speak – like a novel. We are in the experimental zone of the theatre, where hardly anyone else goes. That's what makes this game so exciting. Because Cendrars’ story goes beyond the boundaries. As this production.
in Order to understand it, it only needs an open ear. That's all. Just Delpy, Jucker, Hofstetter have sound a new monster producer discovered. The milk Frother is.
