Ulla von Brandenburg: Singspiel, 2009

Ulla von Brandenburg
Singspiel, 2009
(Black-and-white 16-mm film, sound, 14:34 minutes)

Ulla von Brandenburg’s (b. 1974)
Singspiel (“song-play”) was filmed in
one single shot at Le Corbusier’s Villa
Savoye, following actors in a deceptive
track through the house. In each
space, a character performs a gesture
or movement. The dialogue between
the actors is performed by singing
a collection of partially connected
sentences. The title, which refers to an
opera/operetta-style German musical
drama, heightens the tragic and
uncomfortable sense haunting the work.
