Pippo Pollina & Mike Müller: The Other
What happens when literature and music meet? Or when songs and recitations unite? The Italian cantautore Pippo Pollina, who has been living in Switzerland for more than 30 years, has written his first novel. This is entitled "The Other".
It is the story of two men. Both were born in the late 1950s and grew up far away from each other. One lives in Wolfsburg in Lower Saxony, an important industrial location with many emigrants from the southern countries of Europe. The other lives in Camporeale, a small farming village in Sicily. The two stories develop at an apparent distance, yet there are many points of contact. Little by little, the novel reveals the incredible fate that makes her life paths cross in surprising ways.
On stage two chairs, a table, a piano and a guitar. The reciting voice of Mike Müller, who reads passages from the novel, in between the songs of Pippo Pollina, who rounds off the story with his singing. A concert with a reading? A play with singing? This event cannot be summed up in traditional terms.
