musicians composing for dancers. dancers performing music. Transdisziplinäres Festival und Symposium


Festival for transdisciplinary translations
Composers choreograph sound. Dancers interpret compositions. LABOR SONOR : CHOREOGRAPHING SOUND explores translation processes between sound and movement, music and body. Contemporary forms of visible music and composed actions emerge through the encounters between extended notions of composing, choreographing and dancing. The focal point of this transdisciplinary experiment is how composing practices translate into dance and choreographic concepts translate into music .

The accompanying symposium LABOR DISCOURS : CHOREOGRAPHING SOUND will provide insight into artistic translation processes and the formation of the premiered works. It will bring scholars and artists into dialogue. Focal point is the aesthetic and epistemological potential of such a collaboration and the engagement of the different artistic cultures of knowledge in music and dance. With contributions by Jin Hyun Kim, Katarina Kleinschmidt, Marcello Lussana, Mathias Maschat, and Stephanie Schroedter as well as the participating festival artists.
