The Navidson Records

For »The Navidson Records« 18 performers and a choir emblematically develop together the concept of a labyrinth with the help of texts, music, and choreography. By means of a cross-media and extensive installation the performance examines that moment when the situation tilts, that moment between when one feels at home and this everyday familiarity collapses. What should we do when we suddenly are in nothingness and are nowhere? This uncanny moment can represent situations when we believe we are lost and thrown back on our own. In a mutual performative/musical exploration the performers investigate with the audience the morphogenesis of unsafe situations.
An open work process will be selected for the production and the performance, deliberately taking into account the intermittent loss of orientation. The constant question is: Which decisions do we have to make in order to reach the center of the labyrinth?
»The Navidson Records« is a cooperation of Konzert Theater Bern, Hochschule der Künste Bern, and Münchener Biennale - Festival für Neues Musiktheater.
