OHT works within the boundaries of theatre and beyond

Rompere il Ghiaccio

Dear Filippo,
I'd rather have you read your grandparent's letters yourself. It's softer and alternates with my voice. Like the yodel when it changes pitch, from low register (chest) to high register (head or falsetto). I like this rural song because the shepherds used it to call out the cows or to communicate between villages as their echo reverberated in the valleys. I think it's right to use the yodel to tell the story of two lovers and their difficulty in communicating.

work-in-progress

In November 2020, during covid-19 lockdown, OHT has been invited by Centro S.Chiara in Trento to make a residency without productive due. The result has been an homage to the bare stage by using only the theatrical matter: colours and stage movements.

Tomat - Incantevole Posizione

In 2019 Tomat collaborated with OHT [Office for a Human Theatre] on 19 JULY 1985 - an Alpine Tragedy. He took the role of the chorister in dialogue with a live chorus of 16 voices singing Ligeti’s Lux Aeterna, David Lang and a mountain chant. While the choir represents the emotional and telluric side of the piece, Tomat composed a music evoking nature by treating and distorting natural sounds. His music makes nature the protagonist “in absentia” of the Alpine tragedy.
