Synopsis
In 2007 the internationally known artist couple Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke decided to create an audio/visual interpretation of the novel ‘The Ship Of Fools’ by Sebastian Brant. Although this book was written in 1495, it has remained contemporary up till today with its satirical depiction of the human condition.
Curious to hear what other artists would come up with for such a show, Danielle and Alexander then invited international colleagues, specialized in unusual instruments or dance, to participate. The fascinating journey through time and space, which is documented here, is a wonderful collage of mesmerizing concerts, humorous stories on why the musicians decided to play specific instruments and vivid interviews with performers on how they think mankind has developed over the last 500 years.
