Marlene Dietrich in Marokko – secretly watched on my parents’ small black and white television when I was a little kid, through a crack in the door.Ingrid in Casablanca came later, then Grace Kelly in the Hitchcock movies of the 1950s. And then Romy Schneider in the French thrillers of the 1970s – complex, attractive and mysterious. David Lynch finally brought Nouvelle Vague to America and Isabella Rossellini sang Blue Velvet.Interesting, beautiful women were and are still mirror images of the emotional conflicts that are negotiated in the movies.
cinema romantics is an evening with pop-songs about both iconic movie actresses and their roles. The songs are played live in front of the movie screen, complemented by readings in which some of these divas themselves get a word. Sitting in the cinema chair, we hear songs and project our own film memories onto the screen. The cinema becomes a stage set for the cinema.

An evening with songs and texts about
Romy Schneider, Grace Kelly, Maggie Cheung, Isabella Rossellini, Pam Grier, Marilyn Monroe and other icons of cinema

The premiere of cinema romantics on 18.10.2019 at Filmclub 813 in Cologne was funded by Kulturamt der Stadt Köln and by Bezirksvertretung Köln Innenstadt.

In 2018 Oliver Bedorf and Philine Herrlein created this site specific sound – and theatre – piece. Everyday noises recorded in a hairdesser salon over a couple of weeks form the basis for a music-composition. The music is played via several ghettoblasters that are carried around in the salon, producing a choreography of sound, text-fragments and different resonances depending on their location in the space. The performance will be shown again in the hairdresser – salon Pernille in Köln – Ehrenfeld.

sound-Installation for ghetto blasters and audio-cassettes

Perceiving is a way of acting.
Perception is not something, that happens to us, it is something we do
(Alva Noë: Action in Perception)

This installation is about exploring the aesthetics of room resonance while moving. I recorded various sounds when I first inspected the Lutherturm in Cologne, sounds of my movements inside of the rooms, sounds of my walking up and down the stairs, sounds of the popping noises of light switches when turned on or off. You can listen to these sounds on four ghettoblasters, that are stacked. During its monthlong display the installation will change its place repeatedly and the sounds are being played in the same rooms, in which they were recorded before.
