Silent Films with Live Music

Silent Film: “L’Atlantide” by Jacques Feyder  (France 1921, 163 minutes)

Live Music: The Hula Honeys Orchestra (electric bass, drums, DIY instruments, live electronics)


Collective Improvisation on the Queen of Atlantis


In the year 1911, two French officers adrift in the Sahara desert, discover the mythical realm of Atlantis which is ruled by the ageless and moody queen Antinéa. The queen has taken up the habit of using her prisoners as lovers until she’s had her fill of them. Those fallen out of grace she orders to be killed and embalmed in gold.


Jacques Feyder’s epic story, set during French colonialism and featuring the dancer Stacia Napierkowska in the role of the Saharan Loreley, initiated an entire tradition of exotic-romanticising portrayals of the colonial experience.

To accompany the film, Simon Berz has elaborated an improvisation template, which five Hula Honeys playing electric bass, drums, DIY instruments and live electronics will realise under his lead.
