Mayke Nas’ I Delayed People's Flights by Walking Slowly in Narrow HaLlways

Performed on amplified chalkboards by the Now Hear Ensemble

About the work

In the famous stageplay “Self-Accusation” (1966) by Peter Handke, a first-person narrator puts on the hair shirt. In a sheer endless enumeration of wrongdoings the human morality is cool-headedly dissected and exposed. Almost half a century later the text has lost nothing of it's thought-provoking meaning and inspiration. In "I Delayed People's Flights In Narrow Hallways", Mayke Nas has adapted the idea of Handke's text into a musictheatre-piece for four performers rhythmically writing new confessions on four blackboards as if they were lines of punishment.
