KLITTERN (aesopica)

G. Boyd Kuhlmann

Apart from the flock, a sheep encounters a wolf. To avoid being eaten, it devises a ruse. It asks the wolf to play the flute so it can dance one last time…

By working through the fable “The Wolf and the Kid as Musicians,” ascribed to the ancient poet and slave Aesop, the piece investigates figurations of resistance. It is particularly concerned with scenarios of domination in whichno recourse to official institutions or legitimate forms of political power seems available. Figures of non-participation and withdrawal appear on the scene as the simple plot of the fable is repeatedly enacted anew and dressed up in changing genres: strategies of camouflage, practices of friendship, prophecies of radical change, aestheticist compensations, apocalyptic fantasies, and mystical transformations. The titular method of ‘klittern’ – the contorting and connecting of disparate materials according to a dubious agenda of gross mischief – is personified by the authorial alter ego G. Boyd Kuhlmann, who invokes the 17th-century love poet Quirinus Kuhlmann as well as the B movie pioneer of the 1990s erotic thriller, Gregory Dark.

 

BRUCH is a collaborative framework for artistic research and production. In international collaborations and changing institutional and independent contexts, spatial compositions and performative translations of constellated historical material are developed, often departing from archival explorations. With »KLITTERN (aesopica)« Bruch presents its first work in Berlin. The piece premiered at the Münchner Kammerspiele and was awarded the jury prize of the Körber Studio Junge Regie in 2022.
