On the Other Side: A Concert for Piano and Silences is a new work process opened by Jubilo in 2018. It is an attempt to investigate the moment of passage from the state of imprisonment to the state of freedom questioning the deep meaning of these 2 words. How and in which way we pass the border between inprisonment and freedom? Is this border clear? How far is it from us?
The first stage of the research process, which will be presented, is the work on musical materials devised and composed on the piano by Dawid Ilczyszyn in collaboration with Diego Pileggi. It is an attempt to translate through music the different aspects of the passage from one condition to another. From the first step on the other side of the border to the perception of the “new world” painted and described as free. The figure of Kaspar Hauser has been accompanying the artists in this journey, trying to reinterpret and witness anew a reality in continuous change, giving new lenses to perceive our world and at the same time questioning it from a different perspective, the one of the “outsider”.
