pfau (2)

pfau is a trilogy. The starting point is the song The Peacocks – A Timeless Place, which is interpreted as a music piece, pfau (1), as a performance, pfau (2), and as a dance piece, pfau(3). pfau (2) is inspired by pfau (1) and questions the performative aspect in jazz. The performer develops a performative singing, which allows to experience body functions, such as the heartbeat or breath. Inherent in the performance is the perspective of conspiracy, understood according to the etymology con-spirare, to breathe together. This breath to be shared represents the essence of the atmosphere of a space and contributes to the sense of community among those present.
