“Nights I wander the world’s city streets, looking for you and talking to you, my heart.” Pianist Danaë Killian will show the world her cracked and shining heart next Michaelmas Night, in a solo performance inspired by German Expressionist poet Else Lasker-Schüler’s novel-in-letters Mein Herz. Rich in Australian and world premieres, My Heart is made of music by Danaë's beloved composer friends, by herself, and by Lasker-Schüler’s contemporary Arnold Schoenberg, who once gave the poet money in a time of need. Lasker-Schüler’s Berlin of 1911 bleeds through My Heart into our Melbourne, and in so doing invokes themes of night-wandering, soul-homelessness, and starry yearning.
