ZKM – Zagreb Fri, 4. 10. 2013. / Sat, 5. 10. 2013. at 20:00 PM
Director: Christoph Marthaler
THEATER BASEL, Basel, Switzerland
duration 1 hour and 20 minutes
The Swiss theater director Christoph Marthaler has changed perception of theatre during the last two decades. His absurd and comical stage plays made him famous all around the world.
Enharmonics is a musical composition approach based on the fact that two notes with different names can produce the same sound. According to Christoph Marthaler, human relationships would be impossible if human beings didn’t use and abuse enharmonics. Seating or laying down on a king-size bed, a singing couple reviews an eclectic repertoire ranging from serial music to Michel Polnareff, by way of Bach and the Jackson Five. In this comedy that approaches boulevard theatre, the characters coexist without really perceiving each other and dreams take precedence over reality.
