Verhuisbericht (Change of address, 1983)
music theatre for one actress, several walk-ons and instrumental ensemble
Verhuisbericht is ' un' opera in poche parole' : the score consists primarily of instrumental numbers. The nameless main character sings briefly - her text includes instructions for the use of earplugs - but her role basically consists of precise gestures corroborated by the music . It begins with the delivery of dozens of moving crates and ends with the first night in a new house full of unfamiliar sounds.
