After perfomance talk with Heiner Goebbels
26 February 2014
“Full of yearning for something lost” reads the unpronounceable title of this emblematic performance created in 2004 by the German avant-garde director and composer, Heiner Goebbels, out of an anthology of pensées published by Nobel laureate Elias Canetti.
The production opens up whole new vistas for music theatre, and the experience of a holistic work of art to 21st-century audiences.
The music by Bach, Shostakovich, Ravel, Crumb , Scelsi and Goebbels himself performed by the celebrated Mondriaan Quartet, the talent of the veteran actor André Wilms and the inspired marriage of words, sounds and images come together to create an audio-visual spectacular which is much a mental as a visual challenge.
