Transdisciplinary Festival at Ballhaus Ost
The festival Labor Sonor: Choreographing Sound at Ballhaus Ost explores the possibilities of transfering sound into choreography.
Two performances examine the dancing body as a silent instrument for musical compositions: Dancers Fernanda Farah, Lee Méir and Hanna Sibylle Müller translate Andrea Neumann’s experimental piano music into constellations of movement that are devoid of sound. Chinese musician and poet Yan Jun creates a composition for dancer Takako Suzuki that allows silent meta-music to emerge directly from physical presence. Another special feature of the program is a solo by Matteo Fargion. The composer specializes in translating music into dance; together with British choreographer Jonathan Burrows, he has created a series of duets that explore this transdisciplinary field. The three-day program will be complemented by a symposium as well as choreographies for sound-producing objects, by sounds strolling through space and by ideas of hearing as a reconfiguration of the body in its uniqueness.
