Here the powers of nature are transformed into a physical experience. The large-scale orchestral work ›Earth Dances‹ by the British composer Sir Harrison Birtwistle is one of the most impressive pieces of music of the late 20th century. Birtwistle lends a powerful voice to the living interior, the gigantic fields of energy and forces of our planet, but also its fragility. On this evening, the audience experiences both the live performance and a newly-developed immersive allowing listeners to move freely among a sound and light space incorporating instrumental sounds, groups and orchestral sound masses, resulting in a highly individual encounter with the works. Frankfurt’s art-and-cuisine institution freitagsküche has designed a spatial sculpture for this unusual opening night. A walk-in, edible culinary »warp« in which guests pass artistically designed stations, having and collecting sensory experiences of taste. At the end of this parcours, multiple individual parts amount to an edible composition.
