Speech choir action MOABITER CHÖRE Time to Listen


The Time to Listen festival closes on a high with the world premiere of the speech choir action, MOABITER CHÖRE, by composer and sound artist Peter Ablinger. Two choirs, made up of volunteer performers, will walk on opposite sides of the street as they make their way from the Akademie der Künste in Berlin’s Hansaviertel to Ottopark in Moabit, arriving at the park’s Sustainability Booth. En route, under the direction of two choir leaders, they take turns speaking texts relating to the current climate crisis. Ablinger’s texts are located somewhere between sense and nonsense, politics and surrealism, dismay and satire.

If you would like to participate, you can register at musik@adk.de.

MOABITER CHÖRE is a work commissioned by the Akademie der Künste, Berlin

Part of the Month of contemporary Music Berlin and the Moabit “Ortstermin” arts festival.
