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.

The hammock has embedded sensors to detect the person on the hammock and the swinging on the hammock and plays music based on this.
