The Galaxy in the Lungs – Katia Bouscarrut

22. September 8:30 am

katia-bouscarrut-beim -duesseldorf-festival-2015

A piano evening with both cabaret and a fatal disease, how do these go together? For pianist Katia Bouscarrut, withdrawing from the stage is not an option. With her collage of prose, poetry and music, she speaks, plays, plucks, sings and shouts against metastases, death, wigs and keyboard pedal problems. Her grand piano is an accomplice and an adversary, her companions are Georg Büchner, Thomas Mann, Arthur Rimbaud, Mozart, Debussy and Chopin. Plenty of pain and anger is in play, but also poetry and humour. This programme is not self-therapy, but rather a tender offer that serves to gives hope.
