Melanie Jame Wolf TONIGHT

February 10 | 19.00 Dance/film
Online | Tickets 5 Euro

This revival of TONIGHT takes place online. Because time has a very different quality on screen than on stage, and because the logic of video is different to the logic of theater, Melanie Jame Wolf has reimagined this version of TONIGHT as a film. In this sense, it is a second edition of the work. Offering a fresh take to both those who are familiar with TONIGHT, and those new to the work and the artist.

The audience will be given the information about how to navigate between different audio channels using the Zoom Webinar toolbar. This will allow them to listen to the commentary of their choice, or switch back and forth between various commentaries. In this way, they build their own soundtrack over the course of the event based on what they hear and/or see.
