BRUTTO featuring Lisa Kortschak’s


Performance / Music
brut Reihe
{screen meets music} {tension versus release} {one night only}

In DANCE DINNER & DOOM DOG, a silent movie is shown four times in a row, each time with a different soundtrack produced live by different solo musicians. The combination of unvarying film and varying sound produces constant change, eliciting ever new facets, nuances, highs and lows and different perspectives from the interplay of individual components. The film was made by trans-media artist Lisa Kortschak herself, who in her works combines film, music and performance.

The silent movie features, in a minimalist setting, the movements of a head and the expression of a face as the only protagonists on the video level, producing an abstract storyline between the keywords DANCE, DINNER, DOOM and DOG. Dark, intimate and uncanny, the female face mutates into a landscape it itself ploughs. This creates a narrative pulse between tension and release/redemption that discusses profound aspects of human life without uttering even a single word about them.

Having proven several times how versatile performance-based sound-on-film work can be – with her works MESHES TO MESHES (2011) und INSIGHT THE OUTSIDE (2013) – she now expands her dialogue between film and musical live performance by yet another programme. In her works, Kortschak combines video art, sound installation and live music in a stage setting. Together with Rania Moslam and Gregor Mahnert, she has been curating the monthly concert series BRUTTO at brut since September 2013. In this format, concerts are opened up to include various other forms of art.
