Teenage Lobotomy (2012)
Two musicians, two electric guitars, two chairs, two amplifier stacks: “Teenage Lobotomy” uses music to explore two dualities.

Secondly that of the spectator-consumer, permanently exposed to a wide range of commercial, political or social propaganda, who comes to the theater to take a little break in its comfortable and soothing obscurity.

Glissando (2010)
Glissando is a musical performance based on the piano works of Frédéric Chopin. The word Glissando is a technical term describing the piano technique – close to the heart of the great Polish composer – where one glides from one piano key to the next in order to assert a more human quality, a more dramatic and romantic music. In this sense, the performance will glide in a musical exchange between Chopin and more contemporary musical configurations. Read more…

In the Name of the People (2010)
“In the Name of the People” is a concert of a peculiar kind prepared for the public space. Built around a capella singing reminding us of a liturgical rite but taking place in the main hall of a courthouse, it will confront the spiritual tradition of religion to the secular surroundings of a civil institution. This performance is part of the “Ciudades Paraleles” project, developped by Lola Arrias and Stefan Kaegi for the cities of Berlin, Buenos Aires and Zürich.
