Thespian Play

concept, composition, direction, video: Falk Hübner

performance: Heiner Gulich

A saxophone player stands on stage without his instrument. He is performing a musical choreography, synchronised with sounds from two loudspeakers. Searching for musical expression he is forced to the mechanical rhythm of the soundtrack, and every imperfection in timing bears the risk to let everything fall apart.
