Un Renversement - by Don Giovanni

Un Renversement - by Don Giovanni

Music theater installation that traces the sculptural idea of tipping, overturning, reversing. Live and historical recordings of Mozart's Don Giovanni on tapes, radio waves and body ultrasounds are manipulated, inverted and distorted.

Melodic and harmonic inversions occur in the interpretation of the various parts, which are adapted and performed by all performers regardless of gender or instrument. The libretto is combined with texts by authors such as Virginie Despentes, Maïa Mazaurette or Carolin Emcke. Tapes are stretched in space with fabrics and papers, creating the tilting of objects, bodies and sounds.
A piece by electronic sound artist Marta Zapparoli under the musical direction of Johannes Keller, director of the baroque ensemble Il Profondo for a soprano, a baritone, an actress and three instrumentalists (harpsichord, piano/synthesizer and live electronics).
