ISAAC ALBÉNIZ: IBERIA
Visual concert and puppet theatre
Musical theatre | Concert | Adults
A journey through Spain, created out of dance, imagination, and the magic of rhythms and pictures. Karin Schäfer’s “Iberia” is a visual concert which transports and beguiles its audience through the music of Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909). Her work is based on eight of the twelve Spanish dances which Albeniz composed in the final years of his life and brought together under the title “Iberia”. Taking this as her inspiration, Karin Schäfer uses puppets, masks, light and shadow, animations and projections to create another successful piece of what she terms “visual theatre”. In this fascinating, kaleidoscopic work she seizes on many of the styles and creations of visual artists and translates them into moving images, with a technique that combines pithiness, humour and surprise Till Alexander Körber has written fresh arrangements of Albeniz for violin and piano. The violin part was arranged by Martin Walch.
