The work of the Italian-French-German quartet "Die Hochstapler" (The Impostors) is
based on questions of language and communication. Refraining from any use of notation,
rules and strategies developed out of poetry, card games, alphabets and other sources
of inspiration form the grammar for the hochstaplerish discourse. Four independent voices,
free to suggest, pretend, agree, disagree or ignore at any time of the game, collectively
build up a rhetoric full of hints and references, playful and ever changing.
