Working in close collaboration, composer Stefan Prins and choreographer Daniel Linehan create a hybrid music-dance performance concerned with the themes and paradoxes contained in the idea of “private matters”. What is the value of privacy in a world of increasing surveillance and increasing public oversharing on social media platforms? Is the world really becoming more transparent, or isn’t there always something private/hidden/internal that can’t be fully exposed to the public’s eyes and ears? What is the meaning of intimacy in this context?
In collaboration with 7 dancers, 10 musicians of the renowned music ensemble Klangforum Wien and conductor Bas Wiegers, Prins and Linehan trigger these questions by creating a “third space” that cannot easily be categorized according to conventional binaries. A space beyond the binary of live and mediated presence, of dance and music, of public and private. A space infused by never-ceasing tremblings of music and dance - brutal and fragile – inviting the audience to experience the performance through touch, smell and vibrations.
