Director and Composer Heiner Goebbels
Heiner Goebbels' spellbinding reverie about the potency of language and the imagination has been awarded the Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh International Festival and Best Foreign Performance in the Parisian Grand Prix de la Critique.
At the production’s beating heart is French actor André Wilms, who relishes every word and brings an extraordinary intensity to the poetic images. Amsterdam’s acclaimed Mondriaan String Quartet performs Bach, Shostakovich, Ravel, Bryars, Goebbels and Crumb while Belgian filmmaker Bruno Deville’s live videos enable the richly-speculative work to weave an emotionally powerful spell.
In Eraritjaritjaka director Goebbels harnesses music, voice, movement, design and video to create a semi-surreal world, inspired by the musings of Nobel Laureate Elias Canetti.
It’s a feast for the senses that is not restricted by the confines of the physical theatre space.
Don't miss this love letter to the magic of theatre.
Performed in French with English surtitles.
“Mind-bogglingly brilliant” The Herald UK
In Lieven's words: "I have seen this project three times already, in Lausanne, in Brussels and in Vilnius. Each time I had to agree with the whole audience that watching this quintessential Heiner Goebbels piece is a life-changing experience. He taps into the essence of storytelling and creates subtle soundscapes and images that just draw you in. So often video is used as a gimmick in theatre these days, but not here - it becomes a real voice of its own. After Buenos Aires, New York, Paris and Vienna, finally a chance to discover it in Sydney!"
