Koschka & Heimprofi

Koschka & Heimprofi

“Tablecloth & Markingsigns”

Themes deeply present in Koschka´s songs are Heimat and Travelling. This search for „Heimat“ is a driving force to write and tell her stories about homesickness and nostalgia, travelling to the unknown, loss of home, exile and melancholia drenched in a strong will and hope. These elements Heimprofi uses in the live video projections.

The bounding element in this collaboration is a book as in; diaries, photo albums, agenda´s, journals etc…. Protagonists: a small plastic house, a sparkler, aluminium foil, ink, plants and a book in which she draws and places cut-out images as associations to the songs. By leafing through the book the audience is taken on a visual journey that connects to Koschka´s stories. Every song is enveloped or supported by a small visual universe that comes into existence during the song and collides again. This growing and colliding transports the feeling of movement, not being able to hold on: people observe – images of death – symbols of gathering – abandonment. These loose elements have a dramaturgical line which communicate together an abstract story of it´s own.
