EINIGE TODSÜNDEN (A few deadly sins)
April 2nd. 2017 – 19:00 – Offene Kirche Elisabethen, Basel
Dance, Music, Opera, Buffet
In „A few deadly sins“ the different personalities of „Dangerous Liaisons“ become actors of a piece of which the deadly sins form is the red thread. They are illustrations of musical and dancing moments which appear like the successive sequences of a film.
While the audience wanders around under shining wigs between buffet, dancers and singer, this heterogenous community is being enclosed in a world à la Bunuel, whose insanity is hiding behind its normality.
Accompanied by the music of Vivaldi, J.S. Bach, P.Glass, Carl Orff and others, the piece paints by brush strokes the fascination of a century between church and sins.
A living pictures of more than 30 participants, a festival of the senses and aesthetics to which the spectator is invited like the guest of a private party.
