The Iliad

Performance by Felix Mathias Ott
In the frame of Open Spaces#1-2015

Two men on stage, heavy bodies, everyday clothes. Workers not warriors. Ott presents us with two men slaving away in harmony. The men work with axes, cordless screwdrivers, and tools of all types in utter peace and constant symmetry. In all this Ott demonstrates once again his mastery of all theatrical means: light, sound, wind – everything seems to be finely coordinated and precisely applied. Elisabeth Nehring, Deutschlandradio “Topos (place) seems to be something mighty and difficult to grasp.” Aristoteles
