Quay Brothers

This project combines music and film on the theme of Kafka’s Metamorphosis. It was premiered at the Paris Cité de la Musique in March 2012.

Mikhail Rudy asked the cult film makers The Quay Brothers to make a film adapting Kafka’s Metamorphosis, accompanied by works by Janacek which he plays live. In 2013 The MoMA invited Rudy to perform this show three times on the closing day of The Quay Brothers’ exhibition. Thereafter he performed the show in L’Arsenal in Metz, in Rouen Opera House, De Bijloke Musikcentrum, Nanterre Maison de la Musique, Châlons-en-Champagne La Comète, Rotterdam De Doelen, Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona and Kings Place in London.

The project was chosen among the 10 best multimedia shows of the year 2013 by ISPA’s International conference jury.
