Vocal Naps is a collaboration, founded in 2016 with
Monika Rabofsky, Hartwig Hermann, Regina Hügli, Nicole Krenn, Dominik Krenn, Patricia Bustos, Karin Diaz, Fred Riegler

Vocal Naps is a format in which the protagonists variously connect short naps in unusual public spaces with vocal experiments, currently basedprimarily on yodeling. The dramaturgical plot is reduced to a minimum. In interaction with the performance environment, site-specific sound installations of a performative character emerge. Sleeping and yodeling – two parameters that on the surface seem to have no logically arguable connection to each other – are brought into an absurd relationship with each other. This opens up a new perceptual space, within which they can be experienced and even connoted by means of completely new contextualization, despite their associations that are linked by cultural evidence. A grotesque space of experience emerges thatcalls for feelings to be given free rein in order to manifest a new perceptual state in relation to a reality based on the dream world.
