The programme of the »Ensemble Spinario« refers to the figure of the thorn-puller (»Lo spinario«) in Kleist’s novel »about the marionette theatre«. The piece is about the loss of grace through self-reflection or more specifically the retrieval of grace on another level of consciousness.
The »Ensemble Spinario« was founded by Rupert Huber in Salzburg in 1982. In the beginning it concentrated on radical cross-divisional concepts, which were planned and put into practice by a small group of composers, painters, sculptors, philosophers and writers. Great importance was thereby attributed to the works of John Cage. Furthermore a brass ensemble and choir worked together in theatre and opera productions of the Salzburg Festival for several years.
In the 90s the »Ensemble Spinario« was a set group of five singers, who primarily committed themselves to the comparison of creations of the Dutch period with numerous premieres of living composers. A number of performances took place in Munich, among others at the Gasteig, at the Academy of Fine Arts and at the Bavarian Radio Station.
In its third phase today, the ensemble is practicing the »Impact singing« developed by Rupert Huber, with which, in close cooperation with sumnima.arts, the intuition of participants is directed to an authentic Melos through differentiated disposition techniques.
Important Performances took place at the Dokumenta 14 in Athens, at the Radialsystem in Berlin and at the St. Rupert’s Church in Munich.
