Comics Concert by and with Itay Dvori.

The com­ic con­cert, post­poned sev­er­al times, has final­ly tak­en place on the evening of 16 October in the Bibliothek am Luisenbad, Berlin. A whole two years after the announce­ment, every­one was very excit­ed about the con­cert with com­po­si­tions to comics from comiXcon­nec­tion. The long wait was real­ly worth it. In addi­tion to sound set­tings of Edmond Baudoin’s “Le Voyage,” Shaun Tan’s “The Arrival,” and oth­er pieces from his reper­toire Itay Dvori played his new com­po­si­tions to 6 sto­ries drawn by Slovenian, Croatian, Hungarian and Czech artists. One of the high­lights was the sto­ry It was writ­ten by David Krančan, whose pan­els are not arranged one after the oth­er like in a movie, but one big pic­ture con­tains already all sequences, which the view­er has to approach step by step.

And for the first time, Ileana Surducan’s ani­mat­ed com­ic Precious Present was on show, set to music by Itay Dvori. Fascinating how the music inten­si­fied the plot ten­sion and final­ly led to a — sur­pris­ing — end­ing after a dra­mat­ic course. The whole con­cert has been a fit­ting end to a long-run­ning project.
