gamut inc‘s music theatre series PYTHO


PI MINUS ONE is the fourth edition of gamut inc's PYTHO music theater series, in which the ensemble explores new music theater formats at the Theater at the Delphi Berlin. The 90s thriller π by Darren Aronofsky serves as the basis for PI MINUS ONE: in it, Max, a brilliant young mathematician falls prey to his fascination with the irrational and infinite number π. This increasingly becomes an obsession for him, and pulls him deeper and deeper into a maelstrom of research mania, shady encounters and hallucinations.
MINUS ONE is the term used to describe recordings of musical pieces that are recorded without a melody voice, so that it can be added by instrumentalists.
PI MINUS ONE takes up this idea while alluding to the history of the theater at the Delphi as a silent movie theater: The π film is shown without a soundtrack with subtitles, accompanied by an automatic piano, commented on by the two actors Jordan and Friedrich, who were passed over in the audition for the film. They all too often abandon their actual role - to comment on what is happening in the film and to give background information on the production process. They digress into the private or deviant. They try their hand at interpretations of π, personified by voices of famous theorists and filmmakers. Werner Herzog, Slavoj Žižek or David Lynch speak through them. At some point during the evening, they themselves succumb to the power of π and the boundaries become increasingly blurred.
