Koschka & Heimprofi

Herfsttooi Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Enschede (NL)

“Bestattung Heimmkehr”
is a musictheater performance from Koschka&Heimprofi about Heimat and Travelling. Homesickness, nostalgia and travelling to the unknown, loss of home, exile and melancholia drenched in a strong will and hope are the driving force of this musical theater piece. These themes deeply present in Koschka´s songs are used by Heimprofi 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.

Since 2012 “Koschka und Heimprofi” made several musictheatreperformances wich they performed in Germany, Holland, France and Austria.
