Ferlerne Skaden / Verloren schaduwen
‘Der is gjin ljocht sa skel of der is skaad by’ / ‘There is no light so bright or there is a shadow’ / ‘Er is geen licht zo fel of er is een schaduw’
An invitation to dance with your shadow…
A shadow always follows you, what if you follow your shadow?
Your body casts a shadow, but what shape does it take?
Every light causes a shadow, but what if a shadow alters the light?
And if we loose our shadow, do we loose ourselves?
A cocoon lies on stage, barely recognisable in the dim light. Slow tones are sounding in the space. The light seems to change color – the tones are changing slowly in pitch. The cocoon seems to move – the light seems to get brighter and gradually shift color. Suddenly a fast movement – a shrieking sound fills the space – then again everything quiets down – the movement, the sound, the light.
In Gewording (Becoming) the link between physical and sonic gesture is explored during a live performance, combining movement of the body and live coding.
