About works / performance
Over the last year, I have worked on concepts of 'instrumental theater' within the scope of the International Ensemble Modern Academy. I was involved in the development of two interdisciplinary performances with stage directors Recha La Dous, Christian Grammel and composer / director Heiner Goebbels: 'Sciarrino speculando' (Frankfurt) and 'Der Töne Licht' (ZKM Karlsruhe).
