You Are Pathetic! – Sanfeliu

Event Description

The year is 1798. As the century draws to an end, young Ludwig struggles to make sense of the creative process, and of their own artistic and personal identity. It is a time of promise, but also a time of fear: Liberty, equality, humanity… but also exploitation, colonisation, industrialisation. As the old world crumbles down, young Ludwig tries to find a way forward through music.

Electro-acoustic troubadour Sanfeliu plays Ludwig’s Sonata Op.13 like you’ve never heard it before in this gripping multi-media stage piece about music, difference, and finding a better fit between humans, nature and technology.

Sanfeliu brings it all together with a lyrical style of personal intimacy and unexpected humour – Ned Hammond Westender 2021

Sanfeliu is one of the most unique performers in Brisbane – It’s like Salvador Dali traded in his brushes and paint for a mic and piano.  – Alison St Ledger 2018
