A CONCERT BY MITSUAKI MATSUMOTO
From the choreographer/designer of ‘Lullaby, Stranger’ comes a unique new musical experience.
This is a concert of sound, and of movement. Irreverent towards harmony and melody, both musician and dancer wade through a haunted terrain of fragmented silences, spasms of sounds, darkness, and absences.
Music is not always the driving force, and the dancing body is not always the centrepiece. Together, the two performers invert the notion of a concert, inviting the listener to also see, and the spectator to also listen. In this sensory space, sound and body often disappear, suggesting the loss of something in tangible and yet elusive. The work proposes that the quiet and unseen happenings might be the ones that last.
This performance is part of the G5A Performance Long Runs at the Black Box.
