Frau Franke - 50kHz

Duo Elisabeth Coudoux & Tina Tonagel

The project by Tina Tonagel and Elisabeth Coudoux combines digital and analogue technologies within a self-contained stage scenario.

An audiovisual performance with antique violoncello, traditional horse head violin, historical daylight projector, kinetic objects, self-made instruments, electromechanical installations and a touch of humor. Each new project becomes unpredictable until the performance itself, but has been well-prepared for many hours. Whenever these two creative ladies are developing something together, it will definitely be highly interesting, charming and poetic.
