Philip Miller & William Kentridge
A Ciné Concert by William Kentridge and Philip Miller
- Duration 1h 20
- In English
The ciné concert “Paper Music” is the latest result of a long-standing cooperation between William Kentridge and South African composer Philip Miller, who composed the scores for many of Kentridge’s films, including “Refuse the Hour” and the installation “The Refusal of Time”. The world premiere of “Paper Music” took place in a medieval Florentine courtyard in 2014; in Berlin, it will be presented in the atrium of Martin-Gropius-Bau. The piece is a witty, caustic, quietly subversive song cycle which unites animation films based on Kentridge’s charcoal or ink drawings with a live performance by singers Ann Masina and Joanna Dudley and pianist Vincenzo Pasquariello.
