An entire weekend of Patricia Kopatchinskaja – PatKop for short. Call her eccentric, call her out of the box, but one thing’s for sure: she is a phenomenon. She invites one of her favorite artistic partners, the top orchestra Camerata Bern, over to The Doelen.

Out of all Patricia Kopatchinskaja’s experiments with being a performer, this might be her most experimental project. A film in the style of Dada: an absurdist art movement in which reality is presented just a little bit different than in really is. Objects are taken out of context, dialogues only consist of non-sensical words.  

This film is freely accessible upon showing a ticket for one of the PatKop concerts.  

In collaboration with HELLERAU-European Centre of the Arts, Dresdner Musikfestspiele, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and Lucerne Festival
