The Col­lec­tive

Sound­ing Sit­u­a­tions

Sound­ing Sit­u­a­tions devel­ops high­ly inno­v­a­tive music the­ater where the per­form­ers and musi­cians, the audi­tive and the audi­ence meet in both phys­i­cal and imag­i­nary space for artis­tic action. Their projects cre­ate moments where polit­i­cal art, cur­rent ques­tions of our soci­ety, real­i­ty, utopia, and artis­tic mag­ic merge into a mul­ti­lay­ered art­work.

Often the group works between coun­tries, con­ti­nents, and cul­tur­al bound­aries in trans-tra­di­tion­al exper­i­ments hence over­com­ing chal­lenges and reveal­ing the beau­ty of our shared human exis­tence.

Since 2014 the col­lec­tive explores the­atri­cal sit­u­a­tions between the­ater, stag­ing and music. Live pro­cess­ing of orig­i­nal musi­cal mate­r­i­al, instru­ments, field record­ings and lan­guage sounds are con­nect­ed to a unique com­po­si­tion. The work always looks for a strong rela­tion to the envi­ron­ment in its mate­r­i­al, acoustic and polit­i­cal con­text. Col­lab­o­ra­tions range from musi­cians to chore­o­g­ra­phers, visu­al artists, authors, the­ater and film direc­tors.

The long term work brought the group pre­sent­ed their projects at Haus der Kul­turen der Welt, Kamp­nagel Ham­burg, Hum­boldt Forum and per­formed in Ger­many, Italy, Bel­gium, Cana­da, Brasil, Den­mark, Israel and Rwan­da and oth­er places around the world.
