…liquid trespassing…slippery song…amphibious futures…

Brunnentroll is a watery pathway of six sonic interventions in six different public fountains. Fountains are performative, they activate water and give it choreography, offering a space for people to gather.

Brunnentroll takes advantage of this reality by putting itself in-relation to the performative architecture and “audience” of public fountains. The watery environments of the city’s fountains are explored through a playful concert performance. Brunnentroll embraces the reality that the human body is made up mostly of water always leaking and emerging through relation. When we sweat, when we swim, when we drink, we are constantly engaged in a very personal hydrologic cycle. When we play in and with a fountain, its waters are quite literally changing us, and we it.

Brunnentroll was premiered in Vienna at six different public fountains.
