Production Details / Press Releases
The moment the instrument meets a living body it becomes alive itself, and it remains alive with the help of the sound that is produced in this process and that fills the space between the two. By playing with a hybrid form of solo-duet, the author opens up to the viewer, she questions her own self, her musical and dancing self. This is a solo as a reminiscence of a duet, a union with another body, a contact with an inanimate object but also an act of liberation through the exhaustion of her own physical body.
The SOUNDANCE Festival Berlin shows, promotes and initiates cooperation projects between dancer choreographers and musicians of the Berlin independent scene and invites international guest artists. As a platform for works from contemporary dance, real-time music, improvisation and related styles, SOUNDANCE provides impulses for dialogue between the two genres, open for experiments, analogue and electronic, and shows non-hierarchical artistic approaches of several generations of artists in one programme.
