Tobias Koch (CH), Thibault Lac (FR) & Tore Wallert (DE/SE)

Such Sweet Thunder

They hallucinate, they dream, they sleepwalk. Two three young men are roaming a world in which the unconscious seems to have greater presence than any form of rational control. In the hypnotic reality of beats and fantasies, model houses and where a voice speaks the words of a poem by Federico García Lorca, time melts away like lovers’ hearts. Musician Tobias Koch, dancer Thibault Lac and artist Tore Wallert take the audience along through rustling dried flowers and fresh primroses in a mixture of shifting soundscapes, distorted references to pop music, live singing and altered physical states that resonate of crumbling cinematic and cultural archetypes. A “sweet thunder”, as Shakespeare put it in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, also rolls through this encounter of communion and loneliness.
