[silent film, Leopold Jessner / Paul Leni, Germany 1921]
live-music: Tiefenrausch  by IzP
(first performed: may 02nd 2007, Essen / Germany)
The dreary, gray everyday life of a maid is brightened up by her love for a man. Unexpected events bring changes, steering the protagonists into a hopeless abyss.
A music full of pain and desperation allow nascent hope to appear like a deep sea dive without oxygen tanks: a vague yet deadly abyss with neither hope nor rescue.
TIEFENRAUSCH means RAPTURES OF THE DEEP
