Nur Gewölk [Premiere]

Marion Schmäh, Netherlands, 2003, 16’, OVS. English

Based on But the Clouds, one of the works of theatre that Samuel Beckett created for television. Beckett sets the stage with a man and an absent woman. Marion Schmäh elides all possible characters while still remaining faithful to the original. The image is reduced to a minimal stage design and the audio fragments move from the text to silence to music by synthesiser, creating an abstract landscape full of emotion.
