Helmut Oehring/Stefanie Woerdemann/Torsten Ottersberg (DE)
EURYDIKE? volume 1 (2019)
AUDIO-VIDEO-INSTALLATION WITH PERFORMANCE
NB! The piece will open with a live performance on the 9th where Emily Yabe and Mia Carla Oehring perform live in a choreography of dance and sign language alongside the audio-video-installation.
“EURYDIKE? volume 1” is the first part of the actual instrumental-vocal cycle of documental-poetical works by Helmut Oehring and his team with a focus on isolated female perspectives in male dramas: Courage to hope in catastrophic darkness, in wantless misfortune, soul paralysis, cultural nudity. Dirt.
The deaf dancer Kassandra Wedel, the violinist Emily Yabe and the guitarist Mia Carla Oehring portrait EURYDIKE? in snapshots of an audio-video installation with performance and dance, which in 2020/2021 will be continued in the audiovisual requiem “EURYDIKE? volume 2” for choreographed ensemble, choir and soloists.
The installation is presented at Kunsthal Aarhus in the context of Céline Condorelli’s artwork “Host”.
