Robert Seidel and students of the HMDK class of Puppetry and Animation (Figurentheater) met and restaged the artwork sfumato in an improvised performance, supervised by theatre teacher Prof. Stephanie Rinke. A dynamic stage set, ephemeral paper sculptures and frozen gestures added another layer of exploration to the multifaceted artwork sfumato.
Accompanied by a drone ambient score provided by Seidel, the performers took up actions from the video performance and collaged a new, semi-narrative reality on top. restaging sfumato was commissioned by Filmwinter Stuttgart, which supports artistic research in the tradition of expanded cinema.
