Video: Ulla von Brandenburg at Tate Modern

by Ulla von Brandenburg on 23 October 2007

'Singplay', a short stage ensemble by Ulla von Brandenburg was performed as part of The World As A Stage, a Tate Modern show described as 'a ground-breaking exhibition exploring the rich historical relationship between visual art and the notion of 'theatre'. The ground being broken is perhaps by the Tate itself, from whom this is, in fact, the first exhibition to bring gallery-based and live work together. 'Singplay' is one of the key performances to taking place throughout the exhibition, an unusual piece of artistic theatre from the young German artist. A ‘tableau vivant’, it depicts a family who take turns to mime to a specially recorded song (pre-recorded in German by a young girl).
