Lisa Streich – Performance Precarity

Wednesday 10 March 2021, 12-2pm [online via Minerva]

How is it possible to enter a different cosmos of time beside our very own time and life? What is that limbo that we can get thrown into in a concert – who is responsible for that? The music? The score ? The performer? The listener? Or does it only happen when all three of them find a common denominator? A simultaneous understanding, a harmony of sorts ? This space or time could be called limbo, hereafter, parallel world or the other side of homo sapiens. It is a moment where I can understand or feel the whole meaning of human existence – just for a split second. A moment that is free of singularity and full of plurality, parallelity, possibility.
