Gabosingers: Cars on an A

Event: 16 / 09 / 2016

Hotel Modern and Arthur Sauer perform CARS ON A A
Friday 16 September 2016, 17: 30 - 18: 30 hour
Location: At the Gabo, Coolsingel

Hotel Modern and Arthur Sauer perform the absurd-futuristic act twice on Friday 16 September Cars on an A at the sculpture by Naum Gabo in front of the Bijenkorf, to draw attention to the 26 meter high world-famous, but heavily neglected image from 1957.

Pauline Kalker recites the poem with a voice like a roller coaster Cars on an A. It is a spectacular hymn for the technology, the variety, and the naming of cars. Sculptural explosions, scraping sonorities, phenomeno-acoustic explorations, sounding metal and thumping skins will be part of an ode to constructivism. With his battery of percussion instruments, composer Arthur Sauer will see if he can match Gabo's weightlessness.
