Working closely with the I/O team and the support of Gaudeamus, our artistic research took the form of a work-in-progress crossover performance under the title re-. In order to test a few performative ideas, which include automated music instruments, myself on stage and a scenic environment that immerses our audience, we created two draft performances; re- (1st draft) & re- (2nd draft). The first draft was presented in Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in the context of atelier Spr!tzl and in TivoliVredenburg as part of Gaudeamus Music Week. The second draft was presented as a private event, in collaboration with Spring Festival, Dutch Performing Arts and Gaudeamus.
re- draws its material from the subculture of “clarina” in the Greek 80s. We are interested in studying this remote reality through found online material, using the documentation as a score on stage. The result of our creative process is dream-like world; a concert that decomposes itself into a surreal interaction of elements: a body on stage, light, sound, scenography, text, robotics, audience.
