Composer in Residence for the Stiftung Kunst und Musik Für Dresden

Dresden Residency: Week 12

It’s the Tanzwoche Festival in Dresden this week and I’ve been collaborating with the Las Tapas Dance Lab on a performance at Projeckt Theatre in Neustadt, Dresden!

Taking inspiration from Punch Drunk, we took advantage of the fact that an audience are much more easily manipulated into doing things when you put them in masks!

I orchestrated the evening with an assortment of flute, vocals and electronics from the background, appearing occasionally as a performative figure. It’s amazing how much influence you can have over a participating audience when you’re improvising sound as a hidden spectator!

It was an ambiguously funny, political, abstract and serious evening of fun.

Las Tapas Dance Lab consists is led by Julija Rusevica and consists of recent graduates and students from Dresden’s Palluca School. Check them out here!
