S E I performance
S E I | 20:30 – 21:30 | Lely
The MixTree Bar will be open from 20:00 till 22:30
SEI is a solo dance performance by Suzan Tunca on the edge between improvisation and choreography, between immediate intuitive action and pre-determined acoustic and choreographed movements.
Suzan dances on a solo violin composition by Johan Sebastian Bach remixed live by Giuliano Bracci.
The presence of different and parallel tracks of the piece serves the search for inhabiting a multitude of different body morphologies in dialogue with the acoustic dimensions unfolding around Bach’s composition.
In SEI dance becomes an instrument to investigate the idea of embodied gnosis.
Gnosis is here understood as an intuitive knowing engendered by the experience of inspiration and suspended in an imaginal realm in between the logic of a dancing body and faith.
Dance: Suzan Tunca
Music: J.S. Bach and Giuliano Bracci
