The Artist Is Not Present questions the idea of presence and physical limitation of the word, as well as questions the assumed authority of “the artist”. It is a short, somewhat absurd piece of music theatre that asks more questions than it answers.
Written and directed by Claire Blake. Musicians: Gloria Damijan, Katrin Hauk, Bernhard Schöberl, Gabi Teufner Performer in film: Claire Blake Assistant director: Sarah Scherer
Performed at Das Off Theater, Vienna on the 28th May 2015, as part of Grenzwerte 6, organised bysnim.
