“A Guided Tour of the Exhibition: For Soprano with Handbag”

World premiere

Conception William Kentridge, Joanna Dudley
Vocal construction, choreography and performance Joanna Dudley

Guided tours in museums intend to give visitors a closer understanding of the art work. On the other hand, every text explaining a work of art automatically places it in the past, immobilizes it, silences it. In this performance developed by William Kentridge and soprano Joanna Dudley, they work against the museification of art works. The performance “A Guided Tour of the Exhibition: For Soprano with Handbag” allows the pictures to defend themselves and to resist interpretations. It is both an accompanying programme to the exhibition and its refutation.

Co-production: Berliner Festspiele / Foreign Affairs and Martin-Gropius-Bau
