Duet w/ Etoile Chaville and Julian Datta
In a given space-time-framework, our goal is to let a valid piece of art create itself. The content is not pre-planned. We want to let go of our ideas about the world, as well as of pre-conceived aesthetic models, and start from scratch. Breaking down dance, music, and poetry into their building blocks we let our imaginations use these as tools to process memories and sensations. We enjoy being surprised by the emerging narrative, visual, and musical patterns and events, and sharing these with the audience.
