hara is a solo improvisation by violinist and performer Harald Kimmig. He combines his playing on the violin and electric violin with movement, always with the question: Which movement creates which sound and which sound creates which movement? HK has been working on this theme for a very long time. After a 6-month exploration phase in which he shed new light on this topic, he will present this solo at soundance for the first time.
Harald Kimmig is an improvising musician and performer. In his work, he explores sounds and forms through improvisation and further connections with other arts. In his performances he expands his sound language with a language of movement. He has worked with Peter Kowald, Cecil Taylor, Anzu Furukawa, Hideto Heshiki and others. Currently, in addition to solo programmes, he can be experienced in the trio Kimmig-Studer Zimmerlin, EKT (eriKm, Olaf Tzschoppe, Harald Kimmig) as a duo with Ephraim Wegener, Lilo Stahl and others. For his performance ‘Interface’ he received the Dance and Theatre Prize of the State of Baden-Württemberg in 2019.
The soundance festival berlin presents joint projects by dancers, choreographers, musicians and composers from the Berlin independent scene and invites international guest artists. As a stimulus for dialogue between the various disciplines, the festival presents a broad spectrum of artistic styles, from contemporary dance to real-time music, from Post Butoh to New Jazz and improvisation – analog and electronic. Across generations, diverse works and formats between sound and movement will be experienced by audiences in theater and urban space.
