PHONE CALL TO HADES

Musical performance in the public area with three singers and recorded voices
Performance musicale dans l’espace public pour trois chanteurs et voix enregistrées

[EN]  The performers lead the audience in a mysterious nocturnal open-air ballad. Voices move between body and spirit, sensuousness and sense, affect and intellect. What happens when the voice detaches from the body – as if it has been brought to perfection by technological media? A game of obscurity and discovery, of presence and absence, inspired by the myth of Orpheus.

» The voice as a phenomenon of passage is at the core of nocturnal events. Voices move between body and spirit, sensuousness and sense, affect and intellect. What happens when the voice detaches from the body - like it has been brought to perfection by technological media? In the 19th century the disembodied voices coming from the novel phonographs had an enormous drawing power: Apparently now one could conserve the voices of the dead and bring them back to life once again. Even the inventor and researcher Thomas Edison worked on a device to communicate with the afterworld. But despite enormous scientific progress, the threshold between life and death still lies beyond our fantasy and possibilities. Access is reserved solely for legendary figures in our mythological tales. In the story of Orpheus it is also the voice that paves the way to the dead. The voices of artistic singing every evening along the Isar River will be gradually modified technically – only traces of the bodies doing the singing will remain behind. The vocal transformations speak to us as if they were coming from different worlds. A game of obscurity and discovery, of presence and absence begins. Isabelle Kranabetter

[FR] Alors qu’ils se livrent à un étrange dialogue chanté, les trois interprètes guident le spectateur dans une mystérieuse balade nocturne en plein air et jouent avec un environnement sonore imprévisible. Phone Call to Hades de Cathy van Eck est le premier spectacle produit et développé dans le cadre du programme Young Opera Makers. Sa mise en scène est co-signée par Blanka Radoczy et Isabelle Kranabetter dont le parcours dans le réseau commence dès 2010 avec la participation à un premier atelier de direction et dramaturgie. Cette production, qui s‘inscrit dans un cycle d’activités proposé par enoa autour du mythe d’Orphée, est la première d’une série de créations portées par des équipes de jeunes artistes. Retrouvez Phone Call to Hades en tournée aux au Festival d’Aix-en-Provence cet été.
