Die Bergwerke zu Falun
This formidable duo with a penchant for improvisation is also a regular at the festival: after the acclaimed programmes "Psycho", "Life", "Krankenakte Robert Schumann" and "Blackbird", the new evening by Matthias Brandt and Jens Thomas presents "Die Bergwerke zu Falun", a word-music collage from the elixirs of E.T.A. Hoffmann. The literary outsider stands for a variety of Romanticism that prefers to approach the "night side" of the human condition. The story is based on a true incident: in Falun, Sweden, a miner disappeared in 1677 shortly before his wedding. His body, perfectly preserved by vitriol, was not found until 1719 and only recognised by his unmarried, aged bride. The musical-performative dream team Matthias Brandt & Jens Thomas guarantees an emotional rollercoaster ride.
