when will we finally disturb each other

I run after a thought

until I have caught up with it.

When will we finally disturb each other is about insecurities, showing people whose inner and outer borders are constantly shifting. Surviving on shaky ground demands permanent navigation and adjustment, beyond one single concept of truth. In nine songs that correspond to one scene, the five performers try to structure their world again and again, like restless engineers. As soon as it seems ordered, it immediately decomposes into a meandering, raging something.

Thus, every song is a new attempt to arrive for a short while, to find answers and certainties within oneself – or in encounters with the other. How can one’s own existence be clothed in words in order to make it accessible to others? How does one get from one’s own universe to that of another person?


When will we finally disturb each other moves along the narrow ledge between scene, music and the decomposition of language: language becomes musicalized material, generating new content. The songs are hybrid constructions made of language, sound and music, scenic elements and action. Therefore, depending on one’s perspective, the piece is a concert performance or a performative concert.
