Topic of the festival EnArteOpera this year are female (VERFEMTE) composers; Theresa Thomasberger wrote a play about the dutch cellist and conductor Frieda Belinfante, member of a resistance group in World War II and a known homosexual. She dedicated six years of her live supporting her first love, Henriette Bosmans, a well-known composer of the time. During the war she disguised herself as a man and forged documents in order to help hundreds of persecutees. She also participated in the demolishment of registration office of Amsterdam. After fleeing to the U.S.A. she was the first woman worldwide to found her own orchestra. Because of her sexual orientation this orchestra was closed in 1962.

Since it’s been some time, I’m especially glad to be active in France again.

The top-class international conference takes place on 13.9. at 6 p.m. in Médiathèque André Malraux (language: French).

Cervantes’ „Le retable de merveilles”, Theatre of Wonders” is the inspiration for a performance I will show in Lieu d’Europe on 14.9. at 6 p.m.

On A String, Performance,
13.10.2016, New York

Together with Therese Cafasso and Maximilian Shire I show the performance „On A String”, commissioned by AKFNY.

„On A String” tells the story of an individual seeking direction. Clown acts, Mask Theater, music and storytelling create a single performance with one big theme: the present with all its uncertainties. Dramatical, comical and musical elements portray the moments of decision, characterized by doubt, fear, anger, challenge and love.

With Therese Cafasso, Max Shire and Markus Kupferblum

ACFNY (Austrian Cultural Forum), New York, 13.10.2016
