Die Wolke art group, for a second consecutive year, presents its Unit Motives initiative for the creation of solo contemporary dance works on musical works by great composers.
This year, the event explores the different kinetic and choreographic approaches to the interpretation of works by John Cage, as well as his compositional methods.
Cage (1912-1992) was an American composer, theorist, and writer. A pioneer in the use of indeterminacy and randomness in composition and performance, he is regarded as one of the most important representatives of post-war avant-garde. His contributions to contemporary dance were also significant, through his relationship with choreographer Merce Cunningham.
The participants will each present a short solo piece of their own choreography, produced through discussion and information exchange with Die Wolke, that explores Cage's spirit and methodology with contemporary and historical approaches to the philosophy of the composer.
The performance will take place 4 times: Sat 24 and Sun 25, 19:00 & 22:00.
Duration: 100' (incl. short break)
On both days at 21:00, there will be a happening with live music and concurrent theatre/dance performance, at UP, right upstairs from Vitruvian Thing.
Admittance to the happening will be with Unspecified Contribution
