Thomas Hauert Thomas Hauert / Walking Oscar

[Dance] Thomas Hauert was inspired to do a “musical” by an autobiography he read.  In this case, the quotation marks should be taken seriously. Yet his mental dance ballad relates to the soundtrack, the voice of an actor reading the autobiography. And just as the sound portrait continually fragments and recomposes, so, too, does the work itself, playing with the audience’s ability to let their own memory complete and organize figures and intervals.
