Theatre Installation : Kabinett Ferrari

A lot to see? What visitors can expect to find in the theatre installation "Kabinett Ferrari" from 25 to 27 May can best be summed up with a Masai proverb: It is the ear that penetrates the darkness, not the eye.

Kabinett Ferrari

The stage and light designers Anne Kuhn and Klaus Grünberg have designed an intimate theatre installation for the KunstFestSpiele. At its centre are the virtuoso panoramas by Luc Ferrari, the French composer and proponent of musique concréte, who enjoys cult status today primarily for his experiments with tape recordings.

Allegory of the Cave

Inspired by Plato’s allegory of the cave, in which people experience the world only as the shadows on a wall, the two artists examine the appearance and reality of our aural and visual perception

Inside the Magical Chamber

The voices of Ferrari and his staff accompany 20 visitors at a time through the foyer of the Orangerie into a kind of magical chamber. A secret place where it’s possible to plunge deep into the world of Ferrari’s magnetising sonic images.

Spatial Experience

Grünberg and Kuhn gradually transform the purely audible into a spatial experience. Like a clandestine echo of Ferrari’s art, strange choreographic landscapes of shadows and images emerge to draw visitors into the depths of the Orangery.

Further Works

Klaus Grünberg and Anne Kuhn worked together with directors such as Heiner Goebbels, Barrie Kosky or Tatjana Gürbaca. Klaus Grünberg’s light installation Finsternis 1816 was seen in the Großer Garten in 2016.
