Interconnected Solitude

in collaboration with Goethe-Institut Schweden

Interconnected Solitude

O/Modernt and the Goethe-Institut Schweden are delighted to join forces to create a musical and literary response to the pandemic, reflecting on solitude and togetherness. One musician, one actor and one listener will take part in an encounter charged with unique intimacy. The thematically linked series of 1:1 performances and readings invite you to rediscover the interconnected oneness of musical and literary being:

ALL-EIN-SEIN – alone, and yet together.

The 1:1 performances and readings will be complemented by two further concerts for a larger audience at the Goethe-Institut early in 2021, for which the repertoire will be chosen in response to Wer Allein Ist, the wonderfully evocative poem by Gottfried Benn, written in 1936.

With concert life in a state of suspended animation, ALL-EIN-SEIN revives real-life cultural experience with a magical form of shared live music.

Wer allein ist, ist auch im Geheimnis, / immer steht er in der Bilder Flut, / ihrer Zeugung, ihrer Keimnis, / selbst die Schatten tragen ihre Glut. —Gottfried Benn
Being alone is also being in a secret, / in a flood of images, / in their conception, their generation, / where even the shadows carry their glow. [trans. Jonathan Davis]
