DREI CHORÄLE

Film

What if a choreographer and a musician make a film in which dance, architecture and the sonorous landscape of the city rub up against and fertilise each other? Time and space are stretched to create a special biotope that not only reaches beyond the museum and the dance theatre but creates new relationships between dancers, artists and the audience.  
Isabella Soupart & Guy Vandromme perform Episode#1, the first of a five-part film, for Klarafestival. The film functions as an alternative exhibition space where the majestic space of Wild Gallery in Forest forms the backdrop against which dancers perform figures from Isabella Soupart’s choreographic palette while Guy Vandromme plays slow, pared-down piano music by Eva-Maria Houben. Field recording & ambient sounds slip into the dramaturgy of the film to complete the soundscapes captured.
