„What artwork did you find interesting in the past few months“

“My biggest discovery recently, were essays dealing with the “aesthetics of the absence” in theatre, by the German director and composer Heiner Goebbels. When it comes to an actual experience, I have to mention the performance Ischvara by the Chinese artist Tianzhuo Chen, which was prepared exclusively for the Wiener Festvochen Festival. I also have to mention a small concert in the Tvar Gallery in Brno, that presented an Israeli artist who calls himself Señor Sendwich.“


„What does today’s scenography mean to you?“

„A visual dramaturgy, more than space. A way to approach the spectator through an image, sense or an atmosphere, more than a supportive construction of the drama. A subjective construction more than a support of the narrative.”
