Movement as language on stage
Through his teaching work at the Weimar School of Music, Paul Enke has been able to try his hand at directing and has developed a musical stage language that places the body in motion at the center of his work. Genre plays and insignificant role – anything can be presented and everything with social relevance has a place on the stage.
The focus of Enke’s current research, working with opera students at the Liszt School of Music, has been to investigate the fascinating line that runs between speaking and singing, as well as the connection between vocal expression and physical movement. The motto “alles lebt, alles webt“ (“everything lives, everything weaves/ comes together”), is the foundation for Enke’s style of research and directing.
