–“tzZiiiY, are we in heaven yet?” by Maria Mavridou (GR-NL) -movement , Arvind Ganga (NL) -electric guitar and objects
“tzZiiiY, are we in heaven yet? is a performance that starts with two individual beings and their two distinct languages (movement and sound) that gradually find a way towards each other in order to create a common ground for play. Adding layer after layer to their relationship, through playfulness and confrontation, entanglement and separation, gentleness and friction, they both (ab)use their respective media in all ways imaginable in the (sometimes desperate) attempt to reach a common plane and create a shared dream that everyone can be part of.
–“All at Once” Movement: Kristina Johnstone (ZA) , Thalia Laric (ZA) and Manuela Lucia Tessi (IT-NL) , Music: Coila-Leah Enderstein (ZA-DE) – piano and electronics
All At Once is a study of time using the concept of improvised unison. How can four performers share a thinking place while composing sound and movement in a performance? The work conjures time as it asks the performers to be attentive to the present and near past as they try to predict the future. Through this attention to the tracking of time, a particular quality of presence is exposed.
-“Pasionaria” Concept/movement/sound: Javier Murugarren (ES-NL), Sound: Assaf Weitz, Manolo Artiles
Pasionaria is the first staging of a current physical and sound investigation that uses darkness as a search for the connection of space and time with other planes of perception beyond vision, beyond image. �The fuzzy body and the tenuous space, the areas of penumbra and the lateral poetic attacks are some of the ideas that will be shown in the evening. Thanks to AFK for making this work possible.
Lights for all the pieces Ellen Knops (NL)
Music Dance Performance Series is an artist run project created in direct response to a need to re-consider interdisciplinary performance within a contemporary context. The series presents performances with an explicit compositional focus on the live interaction of movement, sound and lights. The series launches a festival in December.
