VERRÜCKUNG – WIE PÜNKTLICH DIE VERZWEIFLUNG IST (UA)
Sprach-Ton-Performance
mit Texten von Christine Lavant

Agnes Heginger (A) Sopran/Stimme, Komposition | Martina Spitzer (A) Rezitation
Clementine Gasser (CH) Violoncello, Komposition
 
[...] Angeblich soll Gott uns lieben ...
 
Aber er spielt eben auch nur,
nein, nicht einmal das, er arrangiert bloß,
es macht ihm Freude,
dabei zuzusehen,
wenn wir begeistert unser Herz stückweise dafür verwenden,
uns mit einem Glanz, der wie Liebe schillert,
in allen möglichen Varianten auf und ab leuchtet, zu kleiden.
Wir lieben nicht, wir tanzen wie Nachtfalter um das künstliche Licht. [...] Christine Lavant

Holzschnitt Werner Berg "Christine Lavant"
1951 © Werner Berg Museum, Bleiburg
 
 
 
Christine Lavant (1915-1973), in ärmlichen Verhältnissen im Lavanttal/Kärnten (A) aufgewachsen und von Krankheiten gezeichnet, zählt zu den bedeutendsten LyrikerInnen und ErzählerInnen der österreichischen Nachkriegsliteratur. Das als verschollen geglaubte Manuskript 'Aufzeichnungen aus einem Irrenhaus' geht auf einen sechswöchigen Aufenthalt der 19-jährigen Dichterin in der "Landesirrenanstalt" zurück, in der sie nach einem Selbstmordversuch behandelt wurde. Die Schrift wurde Mitte der 90er Jahre im Nachlass einer befreundeten Übersetzerin in London entdeckt und 2001 veröffentlicht: "Selten zuvor wurde so offen, so schonungslos und so poetisch von den Abgründen der Psyche und dem Alltag in der Psychiatrie erzählt, selten zuvor hat sich eine Autorin so radikal dem eigenem Leben genähert", schreiben die Herausgeber.
 
Die Sängerin Agnes Heginger, die Cellistin Clementine Gasser und die Schauspielerin Martina Spitzer widmen sich in "Verrückung – wie pünktlich die Verzweiflung ist" der sprachgewaltigen Lyrik von Christine Lavant und ihrer 1946 verfassten Erzählung "Aufzeichnung aus einem Irrenhaus". Die musikalische Bezugnahme verschafft sich einen Zugriff zu Jazz, neuer Musik und experimenteller Musik im weitesten Sinne.
 
Mit forschendem Klangsinn und Sprachrhythmus als Werkzeug für einen Zugang zum Text werden die Hartnäckigkeit und Tiefe der beschriebenen innerlichen Schlachten ergründet. Die gewählte Instrumentierung – Gesang, Violoncello und Sprechstimme – bildet den Grundparameter für musikalische Strukturgebung und freie Improvisation, für klangliche Entwicklungen und Verläufe, sie schafft Raum für tonale Entfaltung, für feine Schwebungen und eruptiv-akustische Ereignisse. Die Sogwirkung des Textes, welcher ein Fremd-Sein, ein Aufbegehren, eine Art von „Ver-rücktheit“ darstellt, deutet hin auf das antagonistische Verhältnis zwischen der heimatlichen Enge und Geborgenheit einerseits und der Dringlichkeit zur Befreiung aus ebendieser andererseits. Das Hörbarmachen des Nicht-zugehörig-Fühlens und der inneren Zerrissenheit dieser großen österreichischen Literatin bildet das Kernstück des Programms. Christine Lavant spricht über ihre Arbeit: Das Selbst ist ein herrliches Geheimnis hinter tausend und einem Elend und niemals darstellbar … das wahrhaft Erlebte oder vielmehr die stückweisen Spiegelbilder davon finden sich mehr oder weniger verzaubert – verdichtet in meinen Büchern.

Wir freuen uns, dass die Uraufführung dieser Sprach-Ton-Performance im Rahmen des Walserherbst über die Bühne geht. Mit zuvorkommender Genehmigung der Hans Schmid Privatstiftung.

Maresa Hörbiger reads Thomas Bernhard

 

Die verrückte Magdalena by Thomas Bernhard       


February 12 sees the 20th anniversary of the death of Thomas Bernhard. Vienna’s Burgtheater takes this opportunity to commemorate Thomas Bernhard with a series of plays, film screenings and readings.

With an acute sense of Thomas Bernhard’s light touch and unexpected side blows, Maresa Hörbiger will read from the books "Die verrückte Magdalena", "Über allen Gipfeln ist Ruh", "Am Ziel", "Das Vermächtnis" and others. The programme focuses on the women characters created by Bernhard and also includes some lesser known works.

Symmetrien des Abschieds — 27-28 march 2009 at the Burgtheater in Vienna

                            sYMMETRIES OF FAREWELL

                      at the Burgtheater in vienna

  27-28 march 2009, from 7 p.m. until midnight

A Carmen Brucic project

The congress entitled Symmetrien des Abschieds (Symmetries of farewell) explores the realities and illusions of saying goodbye to someone or something.

Artistic and scientific approaches are combined to form a work of art that addresses all the senses. The event makes room for new things and allows surprising perspectives to be developed.

Vienna’s Burgtheater is turned into a place of dialogue, discovery and hospitality. On two evenings it serves as the venue of a great farewell party.

Decisions. Vienna and the symbolic capital

ViennArt is a weekend filled with a great variety of artist performances and an integrative interdisciplinary encounter between people from the arts and sciences, institutions and the business community, students, teachers, free-lancers and the audience. Vienna provides the focus for this intriguing cultural process.

Making decisions perceptible – matinée performance

Dance, performance art and music reveal the decision-making process in all its dimensions – the pleasure of taking ownership of one’s life and shaping the world.
Es kann nicht, es kann nicht so bleiben (This can't go on)

[...] Stating the unbearable: this outcry has an advantage: by making myself understand that – by whatever means – I have to tear free, I am preparing the martial scene of decision, of action, of finding a way out. The exuberance is like a secondary benefit drawn from my impatience; I am feeding on it, I am wallowing in it. Entirely “the artist”, I am even turning the form into content. // Based on Roland Barthes Fragments d’un discours amoureux

Secret Love (premiere)

The secret love of jazz for European Modernism, for so-called classical music – does this love really exist? And if it does, does it hold any significance or does it perhaps only encourage a questionable universality of taste? To these two questions of principle that arise when writing an essay on this topic a third must be added: can this “love” in its multiple forms of relationships be understood and analysed at all, and is it actually worth our while to conjure up for it even the vaguest kind of systematics? Based on Neun Selbstgespräche – Endspiel oder Zukunftsmusik by Robert Bilek from JAZZ op. 3

Die heimliche Liebe des Jazz zur europäischen Moderne
[...] Introducing to the fabric yet another strand, that of electronic music, marks the characteristics at issue here: rhythmic material is unravelled (Roedelius: “Digital Love“) and, fanning out and bringing together familiar sound colours and models, can introduce an urgent propulsion to dissolve pre-existing musical processes: it is an application of different systematic processes, additive and isorhythmic in character.

Subversive classical avant-garde meets yass (polish avant-garde jazz)

>> Subversive classical avant-garde: A description which does not wholly exclude coincidental aspects.
Composition, collage techniques and improvisation combine to form a basis for “convulsive beauty”.

 [...]  If we take the dialectical term ‘classical avant-garde’ literally, it refers to an artistic process which combines within itself the past and the future, the old and the new, the familiar and the unknown, adaptation and resistance. No, not combines but layers, juxtaposes, pits against each other. So that out of the chaos may emerge a new order. But Gasser’s aim is not order as such. She creates a new order through a process of seeking and finding. What was valid a moment ago is valid no longer. The listener realises that order is not a state, but a process. [...]

Helmut Blechner, culture editor Austrian Broadcasting Corporation ORF/Ö1
>> YASS: Avant-garde Jazz from Poland is usually associated with Free Jazz, a part of jazz nomenclature that came into being when the creator of this genre, Ornette Coleman, released his classic records. In the 1960s, Polish jazz saw an explosion of experiments, certainly encouraged by the special interest in jazz professed by the representatives of serious music. This was the time when the Third Stream was born, the unique synthesis of serious music and jazz (particularly Free Jazz).

Established in Danzig in 1988, the  Miłość ensemble opened a new chapter in Polish jazz music. Ryszard Tymon Tymański (guitar) is the leader of the group and together with other young musicians he works against the grain of so-called classical streams in Polish jazz. The group named his music Yass thus tying it in with the original sources of jazz music. Yass  is a conglomerate of New Wave, Free Jazz, contemporary Rock, surrealist instrumental theatre and poetry.

ÜBERTRAGEN ODER SPEICHERN DAS IST DIE FRAGE

Was heben wir auf, seit unseren Zeiten im Kinderzimmer, seit den ersten selbst gekauften Schallplatten, was speichert die Welt in Marmor und digitalen Nullen und Einsern? Und was überträgt sich dadurch, findet Übertragung – und damit Sinnproduktion – überhaupt statt? It’s never too late to have a happy childhood, aber manchmal ist es vor allem gerade noch nicht zu spät, den Übertragungskanal wieder zu öffnen, indem wir die Speicher entrümpeln.
 

Genau dafür haben Claudia Märzendorfer und Nik Hummer eine wunderbare
technologische Poesie gefunden
ihre Speicher schmelzen während der Übertragung das Gespeicherte erzählt von seiner Bedeutung indem es verschwindet
