'Erhebung' - A Dance-Sculpture-Sonic Art Installation
Director & Choreographer: Mayuri Boonham
Sculpture: Jeff Lowe
Sound Art: Bill Fontana
Costume Design: Moritz Junge
Dance Artists: Shreya Kumar, Hian Ruth Voon
New classical Indian dance meets abstract sculpture in Erhebung – a collaboration between ATMA Dance’s Artistic Director Mayuri Boonham and Sculptor Jeff Lowe. Boonham’s increasing abstraction of the dancers’ figures creates an expressive boundary with Lowe’s striking sculpture - a place where form and abstraction merge. Every second of choreography, every viewpoint of the relationship between the sculpture and the dancers becomes a flowing living sculpture.
Erhebung is a dance-sonic-sculpture installation with two dancers. Inspired by T.S. Eliot’s Burnt Norton, the work is devised in collaboration with a team of international artists that include the American Sound Artist Bill Fontana and Costume Designer Moritz Junge from Germany.
‘Erhebung’ is funded by the Arts Council of England and co-commissioned by Pavilion Dance South West and GemArts.
