The music theatre duo Benjamin van Bebber and Leo Hofmann develop performances and installations in which they explore music as a means of encounter. In Nuremberg, they will be guests and hosts at the Borgo, together with the London dance and music duo Burrows & Fargion and the musician Francesca Fargion. For the duration of the festival, set designer Lea Burkhalter will transform the community space of Nuremberg artists* into a walk-in installation where the artists live, work and receive visitors. In a homely ambience they will invent rituals of musical hospitality and invite to chat or to be silent, to listen and perhaps make music together.
The Hamburg music theatre director Benjamin van Bebber and the Zurich composer-performer Leo Hofmann have been working together intensively since 2014. With changing collaborators, the duo has presented various productions at Kampnagel, Hamburg, the Elbphilharmonie and the Gare du Nord, Basel, among others. The choreographer Jonathan Burrows and the composer Matteo Fargion have been travelling worldwide as a duo for thirty years. In their work they have developed a unique style on the borders of dance, performance art, music and comedy. Francesca Fargion works as a composer-performer in London, both as a soloist and in different ensembles and bands.
