Is happiness still possible in a world that seems to be collapsing both physically and morally? In their new work, when air is still around, Avi Kaiser and Sergio Antonino confront themselves with body, nature, environment and their relationship. The work includes original fragments and variations from Ludwig van Beethoven’s symphonies, whose 250th birthday was celebrated all over the world in 2020. Beethoven’s works can be considered as an apotheosis and celebration of the magnificence of nature, but also of its destructive power. The 6th Symphony, also known as the Pastoral, has become a symbol of the changes in our planet and the fight to save it. With fragments of the 6th, 7th and 9th Symphonies and other musical material, Kaiser and Antonino dive into this conflictual and complex field of sensations.
