Was machen die Menschen in der Oper eigentlich, wenn bevor sie auf die Bühne treten bzw. nachdem sie abgehen? Am Ende der Gießener Idomeneo-Inszenierung gibt ein eingespielter Film unter Mozarts Ballett-Musik Antwort.
Doch die ganze Wahrheit hat es natürlich nicht ins Video geschafft – hier drei gesondert erfasste Szenen:
Upsi…getting wild with Neptune
Hauen und Stechen am Garderoben-Buffet
Über Glanzlosigkeit und Spliss von Ilias Perücke diskutieren
Wonach verlangst du?
…but I had great fun reproducing this slightly deceptive scene. By the way – we shot that in a chapel (2011).
In a drawer of my desk I just found two little photographs that had been lost since a couple of years. They were taken on a non-digital camera and I printed them in the little photo lab we used to have in my former appartment on 7*11 cm paper.
They were taken in a student dorm in Zagreb where we stayed for ten days for the European Meeting in 2006. The students were to see their families for Christmas and New Year’s Eve and left their rooms for us to sleep. Among their stuff on their desks were condoms (and I have to: ce n’est pas monastique!), the other photo shows the view of another building across the street.
In April I visited a workshop on photography and the mystery of the human face (for all those who know: a br. Stephen workshop). It was pointed out that interestingly, we make a lot of efforts to keep our faces young and perfect. But all the cosmetics in the world will never be able to fully conceal the stories our eyes are telling. It’s a great thing trying to capture stories in a photograph.
We where shown an amazing and touching series of pictures by the photographer Lalage Snow. She photographed and interviewed British soldiers before they were sent to Afghanistan, during their deployment, and after returing home. “We Are Not The Dead” photos and interviews can be view on The Telegraph’s website.
“It’s a warm summer evening in ancient Greece…”
Thalia and Melpomene sit where they always sit and watch me finally getting my own shot of the theater at night.
