On the second day of Moving Futures Festival edition Den Haag, different art disciplines come together. How can dance become one with music? Choreographers and musicians explore this in the performances Panflutes & Paperwork and Choreopop. And in Notes on Synchrony neuroscience and dance come together.
At 19:30h we start the evening with Notes on Synchrony. In this living laboratory of brain and movement research, the audience witnesses the collision of two very different disciplines exploring the same phenomenon. Neuroscientists and choreographers from the University of Groningen and Random Collision work together.
At 20:50h you can see Panflutes & Paperwork, a collaboration between choreographer Ingrid Berger Myhre and composer Lasse Passage Nøsted. In the duet they take existing expectations around ”creating music for dance” or ”dancing to music” as a starting point. The duet playfully problematizes the conventional relationship between dance and music by challenging the standardised idea of they each have to live up to and what they together can produce. In their quest for assimilation without compromise, the work makes use of scores as a tool to define and prioritise collective structure above individual skills.
Choreopop is a choreographed music album, a hybrid between a dance performance, a pop music concert and live video-clips. Where body and voice become inseparable. Musician Chai Blaq and choreographer Jesús de Vega collaborate in this multidisciplinary project with the aim of merging two disciplines and their creative processes. They both find inspiration in things that seem broken: society, relationships, climate, bodies, etc.
In between the two performances you are treated by a short dance film, curated by Cinedans.
