Phantom Kino Ballett (Lena Willikens & Sarah Szczesny)
Phantom Kino Ballett is an audiovisual drama by Lena Willikens and Sarah Szczesny.
On stage the artists perform an hallucinogenic audio mix to an experimental music video, combining quotations of movie scenes, interview extracts and spoken word with painting and collage in motion and including club references like strobe light and smoke machine.
Phantom Kino Ballett is sound fragment and black theatre, Holly Woodlawn´s nervous breakdowns, Taros arpeggiated anime, Mario Montez´ mobilee, Maria Callas´ chiffre and Anna Oppermann´s eyelashes.
As the Phantom Kino Ballett is by self-concept a processual piece of work, governed by the performance places in the way they use costumes, the sculptural interpretations of the stage, the specific musical mix as well as the integration of lights and smog.
The world of the phantoms is constantly morphing.
