Under The Influence II 2018

Under The Influence II , a  collaboration with Zurich-based musician Sarah Palin

In 2018, Phil Hayes cre­at­ed and pre­sent­ed three small-scale res­i­dency based per­for­mance pro­jects in the Süd­bühne of the Gess­ner­allee. Each time Phil work­ed in res­i­dence for three weeks and then show­ed the work with two per­for­mances. 

The se­ries of works re­flect on Phil’s his­tory of col­lab­o­ra­tive cre­ation with re­gard to the ideas of in­fluence and encounters. Anything can happen.

Continuing on from the work they did together for Drumspeak, a solo piece performed by Sarah for the Solotage Festival at Neubad in Lucerne, Under The Influence II developed their different approaches to creating music and words based around the idea of encounters and meetings.

Songs, Music, Drums & Guitars, Stories and questions.. People you don’t really know, too much information, She’s mean, symptons and strange superpowers.
