We'll Never Let You Go - Oblivia
We’ll Never Let You Go draws on aspects of making mistakes, lying and misunderstanding through the use of spoken text, sound and stage action. The four performers move from one task to another and repeat actions and texts thus linking them together in a looped pattern. The tasks consist of working the multiple cassette recorders and CD-players, the telling of lies and stories and re-enacting fragmented actions. The costumes and objects are remnants from previous processes which are re-cycled and put together in new and surprising ways. The soundscape mixes wild tracks and popular tunes. The piece was presented at the Plateaux Festival at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt in October 2006.
