Description: Co-presented with the Kitchen
The choreography of Danza Permanente comes from a musical composition created in Vienna two centuries ago by a deaf man, Beethoven.
In this new work, the score is transposed into movement for four dancers, each of whom takes the part of a single instrument. They embody the musical structure and dynamics of the string quartet, behaving as sound, in silence. The transposition is by choreographer DD Dorvillier and composer Zeena Parkins, and features dancers Fabian Barba, Nuno Bizarro, Walter Dundervill, Naiara Mendioroz, and rehearsal assistant Heather Kravas. The lighting design by Thomas Dunn, and the acoustic environment by Zeena Parkins, follow the score, framing the silence and the visible music.
