Houseclub presents: Ayşe Orhon & Litó Walkey. With pupils of the Hector-Peterson-Schule
For this edition of Houseclub, Ayşe Orhon and Litó Walkey and the 7th grade pupils of Hector Peterson School elaborate nonsense strategies. In resonance with Dadaist and avant-garde approaches to life, arts and politics, they experiment with language through sampling, cutting and reassembling words and develop micro-compositions, which will be used as disruptive elements in the performance. Thereby the students are at the same time actors and public.

First Dadaist Karaoke.
Participants get to perform a song poetry example from 1932 by Kurt Schwitters, without any prior preparation. For this occasion a special karaoke file is prepared, with the text to be uttered and its specific rhythm (in this case it was Kurt Schwitters’ own performance rhythm was used) which the participants utter the text projected on the wall, to the designated rhythm.
Further Dada-Okes are planned with a variety of Dadaist poems by Jan Hanlo, Gherasim Luca, Bernard Heidsieck, Kurt Schwitters and others to be added.
