Lena Willikens & Sarah Szczesny Collaborate On Audiovisual Drama ‘Phantom Kino Ballett’


Lena Willikens and Sarah Szczesny have collaborated on Phantom Kino Ballett, an assemblage of performance, installation, soundtrack and video, for RVNG INTL-affiliated art space Commend's 'Commend See' series. In short, it's a performance, installation, soundtrack and video conceived of and mixed by Lena Willikens and Sarah Szczesny.

Putting an emphasis on collectability, the soundtrack to the piece will also be released on a run of 15 vinyl pieces and 300 cassettes. The cassette edition includes a 40-minute addendum called Passage Transkript, a soundscape created by Willikens & Szczesny inspired by their time in Kyoto, Japan in the autumn of 2017. Live presentations of the 'audiovisual drama' will also take place on the following dates:

September 13, 2018 – Phi Centre – Montréal, Canada
