Hugo Ball was a German Dadaist writer and poet born in 1886 and died in 1927. This text reflects the fundamental principles of Dadaism, which lies in the absurdity that the lack of meaning produces. I’ve seized on this idea for this creative work, in which the young performers will illustrate these funny incoherent statements musically, and will themselves blend their musical playing with the words of the text, as well as the stage acting called for in this work. I think there’s a real pedagogical challenge here, both difficult and entertaining; another way of using one’s instrument that should help them overcome certain difficulties in a less conventional or at least different pedagogical mode.
