Umwege zum Konzert — Ruedi Häusermann

300,00 DKK

Ruedi Häusermann was born in Lenzburg, Switzerland, in 1948. Over the years, in and through his projects, he has developed his own music-theater language, for which he has received many awards and prizes (e. g. the Bayerischer Theaterpreis). In this language text, sound, image and scenery are treated as equivalent elements and woven into a comprehensive, finely ramified score. After having studied first economics and then music, he soon became interested in jazz and free improvisation (e. g. with his ensemble “The Immervollesäle”). He developed his first theatrical projects in collaboration with the painter Giuseppe Reichmuth. His solo project “Der Schritt ins Jenseits” of 1993 was his first deliberate attempt at putting the theatrical world into a context with the world of free music. All his works realized since then can be regarded as part of an ongoing research project that investigates how these two disparate environments can mutually open up spaces for each other
