Schlafes Bruder – Ensemble CONTINUUM & Thomas Halle

25.9.2019, 20:00

The tragic story of the musical genius Johannes Elias Alder and his life doomed to failure by dramatic complications is told in a mixture of spoken word and both baroque and modern musical compositions. In this way Robert Schneider’s novel ‘Schlafe’s Brother’ develops into a concert evening with six instrumentalists and an actor by using the space, music making from a range of perspectives and the interplay of light and sound. Everything reflects the remarkable sound world of the protagonist while at the same time presenting a portrait of social mores that is packed with civilization’s shortcomings.

With the kind support of the Stiftung van Meeteren, the Motel One Düsseldorf-Hauptbahnhof and the Neander church.
A co-production between PODIUM Esslingen and düsseldorf festival!
