DADA Republic!

I made this work together with Stephan-Max Wirth and the ballet ensemble of the Opernhaus Kiel. The choreographer was Mario Schröder. The idea came from Stephan-Max. He found a script of Paul van Ostaijen which has not been made into a movie. So I wrote kind of a script which we could carry out to a film. We shoot on S8 and 16mm. I made a lot of scenes and made a live montage because Jazz is always changing and jamming. This was very special because every evening we got a new film, and thanks to my experiences in performing live as a Video Artist it was a wonderful journey. Malte Nieschalk did the camera and Janos Erdmann did the live typo.
