a performance in a circle
Alles altert und verjüngt sich wieder.
Warum sind wir ausgenommen vom schönen Kreislauf
der Natur? Oder gilt er auch für uns?
Friedrich Hölderlin, Hyperion
Tones of Clay and Acoustics
TON is a performance in a circle. In the center of the stage stands a large structure made of several compartments;
each compartment contains one chair for an audience member.
The performers circle around the compartmentalised audience for a half an hour.
Each viewer, sitting in their own private booth, experiences only one segment of the entire circle.
While creating this piece we were confronted with core principles and we observed:
We can only move forward by moving forwards.
Please note: This performance includes stroboscopic light effects as well as very loud music.
