This is a project we started in lockdown 2020 and performed to a very restricted, minute crowd in Berlin, twice, during a huge thunderstorm.
We managed to get our schedules together, in order to perform a small selection of shows in Germany and France, to bring this melancholic yet beautiful piece back into the public realm.
Tour in cooperation with Kirmes @ Powerline Agency.

Set in the form of a song cycle, it draws inspiration from the symbolism of the German Romantic traditions. It is dark and unsettling, and the singing conveys a deep understanding of the music while at the same time keeping a strange distance to it.
Founded in 2006 in Berlin, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop has since its inception dedicated itself to the development of new forms of experimental music theater. With great openness, the ensemble creates new formats in collaboration with international artists from other genres and stages music in current contexts. In recent years, the focus of the ensemble’s work has shifted to an examination of the body. The members of the ensemble have developed from pure instrumentalists to musical performers and co-authors of these collaborative productions.
A production by Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop. Funded by Senate Department for Culture and Community and the Gema Foundation.
In cooperation with silent green. Tour in cooperation with Powerline Agency.
Co-presented by Synästhesie Festival, Digital in Berlin und Byte FM (media partners)
