Silent Confrontation

What is hidden behind the scenery of a renaissance painting? What lies behind the audible of a composition from the 15th century? In his new piece “Silent Confrontation” the collective laborgras examines painted and musical compositions of the renaissance period. The choreography offers a translation of the rigid works of art into the present, via a tangible direct presence and makes the unconscious elements of the pieces accessible to the audience. In a combination of contemporary dance, live music, light design and costume, a past era is given an update and interpreted completely new.

MariaGiulia Serantoni, Rosalind Masson, Lena Meierkord and Cesare Benedetti
