Working closely with the I/O team and the support of Gaudeamus, we are currently being devising our upcoming 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 have created a 30′-long draft performance, re- (1st draft). This tryout has been presented in Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in the context of atelier Spr!tzl and TivoliVredenburg as part of Gaudeamus Music Week.
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 into a surreal interaction of elements: a performer, light, sound, scenography, text, robotics, audience.
The performance will have its premiere in the spring of 2019 in the Netherlands. Stay tuned!
