  • Q & A

    24 September, following the performance

Whenever Tim Etchells, cofounder of the world-famous performance group Forced Entertainment, and violinist Aisha Orazbayeva, renowned for her fearless interpretations and radical approaches, collaborate, language and music become equal counterparts. Through their intense joint improvisations, the two artists stage a premiere for performers and musicians: a Heartbreaking Final. The autonomous elements combine in a relationship free of any dominant entity. The text performs a restless thought process. The free associations depict a world in fragments. Political fears, recollections, love letters and film plots are whispered, sung, spoken or shouted out loud on stage. The voices convey meaning, but they also create sound, rhythm and tonality. Orazbayeva contrasts this vocal output with her composition for violins, featuring musical elements and a dynamic all of their own. A brilliant back-and-forth of language and music awaits!
