rubisco variations

The Sonata of Photosynthesis

Nick Mangafas

Following its successful debut in the spring, this marvelous production returns to the Circus. By means of photosynthesis, man has come up with a concept that is almost impossible to grasp. We have probably come to terms with it and yet the question remains as to whether or not a process so directly linked to life on earth and how we breathe can only be understood by biochemists. Art can help people understand new links to greenery and how we see it, as well as waste recycling and growth.

Otto Lechner is blind and plays music; he sees music and literature as concrete tools to perceive or sense that which is concealed. Perhaps you can better understand rubisco-variations by closing your eyes. We do not know yet. Accompanied by language, music and dance, Anne Bennent and Otto Lechner set out to do just that and give photosynthesis a human face.
