TON, a joint project by director Sabrina Hölzer, composer Liza Lim and artist Volker März, combines sculptural elements and elements from musical theatre, bringing together the visual and auditory senses in a uniquely confident manner. Space and objects, instrumentalists and audience meet on autonomous and independent ground in an open performance situation. Sounds waft through the room. The draft created by brass instruments is transformed into the movement of mobiles, and the dark notes of the Ganassi recorder seem to play with and pervade the human clay figures that are part of these mobiles. The clay “Unos” by Volker März are literally animated by the “musical breath”.
TON, a scene for mobile, audience and instrumentalists, is an experiential space that originates in the constant joint search for cultural conditions, individuality and interaction.
