DANCE DINNER & DOOM DOG, 2016, filmconcert, brut, Vienna
In Dance Dinner & Doom Dog, a silent movie (15min) is shown four times in a row, each time with a different soundtrack produced live by different solo musicians. The combination of unvarying film and varying sound produces constant change, eliciting ever new facets, nuances, highs and lows and different perspectives from the interplay of individual components. The film was made by trans-media artist Lisa Kortschak herself, who in her works combines film, music and performance. Idea, concept: Lisa Kortschak With: Billy Roisz, Susanna Gartmayer, Veronika Eberhart and Lisa Kortschak

INSIGHT THE OUTSIDE, 2014, brut, Vienna
The film shows urban landscapes and people in public spaces captured only from afar while the distance between the observer and the observed establishes it’s own dynamic. The distant view provokes speculation about the ongoing and develops it’s own narrative as the desire of getting closer is initially present. Into this setting four songs are placed. The performer appears on stage and, as the spotlight goes on, the filmscreening turns into a live concert. As parts of the songs are performed in the film, outside-film and inside-performance space will overlap. While live-peformance and film interact on different levels the focus shifts between filmscreening, concert, score and soundtrack. Concept, music, video, performance: Lisa Kortschak/ Duration: 30 min
