Missa in H-Moll
Length: 110 minutes, no intermission
This work by J.S.Bach and its implications beyond audibility refer much more to human life than to god. Bach is most concerned with the prayers for mercy for the indigence of human existence in this world. The Missa in H-Minor is an important landmark of western music, which treats human life as its central theme.
The piece allows a glance and response through the closed shell of
a human being into its inside, into a space where the human creature
is being discovered anew, where human existence is the measure of all
things. One single person, a couple, a group, a mass movement, its intermediate
spaces and worlds build the material for the narrative of this scenic
world premiere. It does not simply reiterate the drama of the music,
but rather makes it visible for the audience.
