Work commentary, Charlotte Bösling & Ole Hübner, 2017:
“Philomel with Melody” / a nocturnal remix / une production très tragique

the roles: the animal / the restless / the accompanying / the connecting / the connected / the foolish / the opposite / the innocent / the divided / the losing / the lost

a choir, silent

a protagonist

a narrator, along the dully stinking canal, night-drunk and moonsickled, feasting on the sight of the green sloshing liquid

white noise

one night

“Come, now a roundel an a fairy song!” (Shakespeare)



mask on / through the tunnel / striding stumbling / gawking / water

torn loose we float to the left & to the right along the color spectrum

a black night

drums / voices / Mendelssohn / radio

is repeating / clap

is repeating / clap

is repeating / clap

is repeating / clap

the media image compressed into a neutral-looking object that has become haptic and ingestible

and now listen to the rustling black night
