Three artistic creations are combined into one performance exploring contemporary methods of creative interaction. ironic erratic erotic is a performance-experiment in cross-modal transcription and improvisation by Scott Rubin. Pre-recorded and pre-improvised material is re-exchanged on stage with live instruments amplifying and subverting choreographed movement, whilst motion sensors allow the dancer to manipulate acoustic sound into live electronics, creating digital and analogue relationships between the dancer, the musicians, and the sound. Protection is a micro-opera by Asia Ahmetjanova observing the choices that have to be made in order to integrate within modern society: the combination of the emotional, the spiritual and the political, the questioning of our own existence and our human responsibilities as interactive players on the world stage. Hans-Joachim Hespos’s poorgi-blues acts as a prelude to these two brand new works, a piece first heard a third of a century ago but probably not again since, an exercise in juxtaposition with still today pushes both instrumentalists close to their performative limits.
