Donnerstag 18. Februar 2016, doors: 19:30 / start time: 20:00
“Privilegierte Partnerschaft“ is a Turkish-German duo with Antje Vowinckel und Korhan Erel. Their performance „words and beeps“ is a mutual language course which consists of words and electronic sounds played using MIDI controllers. The sonic material is pre-determined and programmed, yet the interaction and performance is improvised. The performance can as much musical as it can also be completely narrative, where the material leads to imagination of stories and images.
Followed by solo performance by Korhan Erel and Stadt Logik by Antje Vowinckel
