premiered at the NATIONAL TAICHUNG THEATRE, 7 + 8 April 2018

DANCE CONCERT – takes the form of a dance concert – a musical performance where dance makes music.  Following the invention of Russian physicist Léon Theremin (1896-1993), the idea was to appropriate from operational parameters of terpsitone – an analogue space-played instrument that uses ether waves,  electromagnetic fields, and the electrical conduction of the human body. The sounds are obtained by simply moving in proximity towards or away from an antenna without touching the instrument, as opposed to the traditional European instrument that involves direct physical contact. Terpsitone is played through a virtual field. This work opens a new cycle concerning space. DANCE CONCERT is build from a concern with human beings’ relationship with their environment.   Against the narrative of the instrument being a tool for the


exercise of power and surveillance, conquering and tracing inner and outer boundaries – DANCE CONCERT is a dynamic entanglement, without apparent boundaries, where dancing bodies organise silence, engaging in the practice of listening.

Upcoming Performances:

12 + 13 September DANCE CONCERT / Productie Huis Rotterdam / NL

 28 September DANCE CONCERT / Centre chorégraphique national de Caen en Normandie / FR

 3 – 6 October DANCE CONCERT / Centre Pompidou in the frame of Festival d’Automne / FR
