RAVENACT: AUGENGERÄUSCH [EYE NOISE] is a Berlin based duo collaboration, made up of Violonist, composer, and poet Saara Wallraf and composer, synthesizer player and mask maker Liz Kosack.
Shapes drawn in light, the face obscured, droning and virtuosic bursts of sound, the outlines of human and animalistic forms grounding the real simplicity of nature: this is the challenge of a newly created performance piece in the night of this Halloween eve. Using the idea of deconstructing the elements of a film (visual/text/audio) and using them not simultaneously, but re-involving them with each other in new ways, the artists create a scenery with strong motives of the body and shifting time.
Shadow imagery, mask work, and multi-tongued poetry (German and USA) together with dialogues of sound and movement pulls out the hidden narrative by the eyes and ears.
