„Frequenzen“, a newly initiated improvisation series in exploratorium berlin, want to open an experimental and inspiring space for a dialog between dance, performance, improvised music and the audience. The improvisation series explore limits and intersections of sound and movement at single performance-evenings with changing casts and topics. The series is looking for new encounters between art forms, artists and audience.

 

Body-pulse and sound-vibration. Pulse moves, between memory

and the perception of the moment.

Corpus in E-Motion. Post-oscillating time.

The risk of the unknown.

Fine tuning of body and sound, dissonance-consonance,

the disharmonious harmony, chaotic silence.

The audience, the frequency of the gaze.

 

In the second part of "Frequenzen" three dancers encounter three musicians and take the audience on a journey through their sounds, their bodies and the space to an unknown coast.

After the performance the audience is invited to speak with the performers of the evening.

 

Curators: Anna Barth, Annalisa Maggiani, Ana Carbia,

Manuela Giovagnetti, Yuko Kaseki, Sonja Heller

ADRIAN SHEPHARD: My primary interest is exploration of the mind and body phenomenon through butoh dance.This has developed through work with Masaki Iwana, a former student of its founder Tatsumi Hijikata, and my daily practice of Vipassana meditation. Dance for me is to approach the first and last moment of life at the same time. We are always one breath , one heartbeat away from the mystery of the absolute unknown. I’m a misconstructionist artist and my means of expression and research use the body, digital art, film, sound, drawing, poetry, photography and tarot.
