The Fluxus performance AVc, the Little Private and Sound Theater of Rebecca von Stahl (in memoriam Charlotte Moorman) initially stages a cellist’s hysteria, a musician’s metamorphosis, from up-tight classical soloist to unbridled avant-garde performer. Over the course of the performance, the cellist undergoes a slow but radical transformation, which traces, through the prism of classical, modern and experimental scores, the evolution of the instrument, its repertoire and its use throughout the history of music.
The new version in a Lecture-performance combines the world of the cellist to the strict frame of an academic lecture dedicate to Fluxus, which also undergoes a slow transformation, installing at the end - like a mirror of the cellist´s metamorphosis – both an ironic and experimental situation.
