BEAT FURRER: FAMA

The drama of listening

to

London | Huddersfield

Book

When Beat Furrer’s FAMA was premiered in Germany in 2005 it was hailed as ‘a miracle’ by Die Zeit. Now, after a decade of performances across Europe, this masterpiece of sound theatre finally arrives in the UK.

Based on the novella Fräulein Else by Arthur Schnitzler, FAMA follows the story of a distressed young woman forced into prostitution in order to pay her father’s debts. But in Furrer’s music, nothing is as it first appears: linear time seems to dissolve and a momentary snapshot becomes the subject of an intense narrative, as Furrer gives audible expression to a series of shocking events.
