What do adults see and what to children see? During this

5 minute view onto an abandoned field we hear voices of 8-10 year olds from Oberhausen describing a landscape whose future is just as uncertain as that of the children.

Commissioned by Rimini Protokoll (Stefan Kaegi) as part of TRUCK TRACKS RUHR 2016. Presented in cooperation with KURZFILMTAGE OBERHAUSEN, LUDWIGGALLERY SCHLOSS OBERHAUSEN and produced by URBANE KUENSTE RUHR.


A truck becomes a mobile auditorium that drives through the city of Oberhausen, framing the city outside. 7 artists have been invited to create 7 audio tracks for 7 different locations in Oberhausen. Over the course of one year (2016-2017), 49 views will be ‘staged’ within Germany’s Ruhr Valley.

About

BLICK AUF DAS BEWEGTE BILD:


The Audio Track was created specifically for this context: the audience sit inside the truck looking out onto this empty field for 5 minutes. During this time three children aged between 8-10 from Oberhausen describe the view the audience is looking at.


The audio recording of the children was made at Theater Oberhausen while they watched (for the first time/ unrehearsed) a video recording of that same view. Over the course of the 5 minutes their descriptions turn into interpretations, and the stability of the ‘live’ image in front of the audience slowly merges into a past or future scenario that is both speculative and personal to the children.

Belluard Festival

Fribourg

(French, German,

English)

A performative moment guided by children: The audience stands along the edge of an empty site, an abandoned wilderness in the middle of the city. We (the audience) are listening to a group of local children describing their view onto this site, in detail. Eyes follow intently the things they notice, they observe, they see, and we see, too, or should (apparently) be seeing? Now.



The piece is developed site-specifically for Fribourg and is a commission by Belluard Festival.

It will be available as an audio track for 6 audience members at a time, available at the ticket office throughout the festival between 18:00-21:00.


It will be available in French, German and English, recorded with three different groups of children, who are unrehearsed. All three language tracks will therefore differ from each other.
