Urlicht – Primal Light

Urlicht Primal Light brings together Franui, a company of Circa acrobats and young performers from Bad Goisern to create a new acrobat-music-theatre creation. Based on the companies shared love of Mahler’s songs, the musical spine is Franui’s Mahlerlieder album, which will be edited, augmented and adapted for this live musical performance. Accompanied by physical score developed by Yaron Lifschitz and Circa acrobats bringing the flavours and textures of Mahler, as interpreted by Franui, to life.

This is a concert of new perception with 20 artists as field researchers, stimulated through discovery and appreciation, navigating this exquisite world together before us, to utter delight.
