Florian Hecker: Articulação

Sunday 11 May, Dusk (8.15 - 9pm). Doors 7.30pm

Performance and album launch by the internationally renowned artist. Articulação deepens Hecker’s collaboration with Reza Negarestani, author of the libretto created for Hinge (2012). In two distinct renderings this piece articulates a complex scene in  which the two obelisks of the script - one from the perspective of  nature and one from the perspective of culture - are recited  simultaneously in an informational yet dramatic style. More information on the performance can be found here.
