2011 - 2013:
"alle Deine Namen"

A coproduction Collectif barbare / Schlachthaus Theater Bern / Theater Tuchlaube Aarau

Astride Schlaefli and Anna Trauffer dive into the poetic world of Raphael Urweider. Alle deine Namen - 26 poems about women's first names, arranged in alphabetical order. They met the author and decided together to do a reading accompanied by music. But during the performances, the poet is not there. We hear him on recordings, he appears on projections - often in a cage - and his clothes are lying around on the stage in disorder. Musicians appropriate his texts, accompany them and illustrate them as they wish. Apart from the piano and double bass, they mainly use a panoply of heterogeneous objects that they have transformed into an unconventional instrumentarium. This evening that should have been a reading is gradually being transformed into musical theatre and sound installation...But by the way, what have they done with the author?
