 Marcel Odenbach
«The Distance between Me and my Losses»

In this startling original and highly charged work, Odenbach locates the construction of self and identity in the realm of vision, creating an enigmatic memory theater of popular and historical representation. The romantic opera of Schubert's "Erl King" alternates with Burundi funeral songs as the dark musical accompaniment to this inquiry into personal and cultural loss and desire. Odenbach positions identity in a tense relation to history, culture and sexuality, where the self is only partially visible and partially knowable.
