Time: 20.30

Place: Klapperfeld, Klapperfeldstrasse 5, Frankfurt am Main

Entry: 3 EUR


PLAY will bring your heads to explosion through a mixture of the most modern lyric, improvised music and performance art in the new event “Explosure”. For this PLAY-evening rooms and corridors of the Klapperfeld underground become a living archive filled with cluttering and roaring sounds, unheard noises, bursting images - like the darkest and brightest corners of the meanders of memory.

PLAY “Explosure” in the program along modern music repertoire features new piece by Austrian author Gerhild Steinbuch staged by regisseur Laura Linnenbaum. Set design prepared for the event is a result of collaboration between Frankfurt-based artists David Gonter and Viviane Niebling and Swiss author Jeremy Wenger.


Music: Georges Aperghis - “Recitation”, Peter Ablinger - “Black Series” (A, B), Michael Maierhof - “Splitting 43”, Giacinto Scelsi - “Il est grand temps”, Jagoda Szmytka - “INTRO” & “Song I” from “LOST”, Peter Ablinger - “Black Series” (C, D, E)
