Production Details / Press Releases
„Symphonie des Bauens“ is a physical as well as a musical exploration of the interior of the heating house of Uferstudios. After a probationary period as a construction worker on the building site of this new venue, Felix M. Ott composes a symphony in four movements, in which tools become instruments and the noises of building become sound. Incidentally, this creates music and meaning worlds that will not only shake the believed, but also threaten the new walls. In this brute musical piece, Felix M. Ott himself becomes part of the composition.
Felix Mathias Ott, born 1983 in Reutlingen, has been living in Berlin for 15 years and works internationally mainly in the field of contemporary dance. After studying stage design, he completed the program ‚Dance, Context, Choreography’ at the Hochschulübergreifendes Zentrum Tanz (HZT) Berlin. Since then he has been working as a performer; since 2011 he has been touring Europe and Asia with his own productions. His artistic work and research are supported by, amongst others, the European network APAP (advancing performing arts project), the Berlin cultural senate and the Goethe Institute.
