ballade n 1
a walking monologue
(voice - drawing - live electronics – video relay)
in English a ballad is a song – une ballade in French is both a walk and a song
Ballad n*1 is a new performance work which continues exploring my interest in visual and sonic representation of the voice, while looking at of one of life most defining gesture, walking.
Walking is understood here as a simultaneous act of writing and reading (space). Each step I take reads the ground and leaves a trace.
There are four stages to this ballade
-A beginning written in vowels
-Walking the local newspaper
-Writing and sounding and walking 100 steps
Premiered on the 23rd of October at Klang im Turm in Munich
