Halber Mensch (half a man) depicts a human condition for which, a dramatic change in one’s life, causes such overwhelm to induce to seek safeness into a past image of oneself. This ‘ex-identity’, becomes a kind of ghost, with which, any interaction’s attempt, is due to failure. A feeling of loss, of being misplaced, often follows a major change. Then the past is perceived as a safe shelter, but yet accessible. Performed by Cseallox Duo
This teaser is from a live recording of 6.Madonna performed by AMCO Ensemble. It was part of a project inspired by Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire. My Pierrot Lunaire is drug addicted. The interesting thing about such condition is the attachment of the identity with an altered persona. The experience of such altered Self is so strong to exclude any other possible Self. There is desperation when there is lack of choice in who to be. The text is taken both from the same piece in the original Pierrot Lunaire and from the movie Christiane F.
Concert, film, theater… The staging of a delirium from its breaking through till a total contamination of a young man’s reality.
