This week, Elisabeth will be dancing in the premiere of ‘pan – oscillate’ at WUK in Vienna. It is a piece which was created together in collaboration with the artist duo Schaitl / Costa.
pan—oscillate is a movement and sound performance based on the inherent qualities of the sound-terms “panning” and “oscillating”. These qualities are referenced and translated into movement scores for three performers, and a live sound composition for a solo, electro-acoustic, sound performance.
In pan—oscillate, the role of the ventilator alternates between being a sound source to being the premise for movement; and from a kinetic element to an active performer.

A DANCING ARCHIVE | Artémise Ploegaerts
A Dancing Archive looks at dancer Elisabeth Schilling’s personal background, experience and dance memories. She was born near Trier in Germany and first trained as a ballet dancer. She is now living and working throughout Europe as a professional contemporary dancer. Elisabeth has the particularity of working on embodying, disembodying, and re-embodying choreographic works and dance practices. She is full of traces that allow her to subjectively create movement material reflecting on a complex combination of discipline (or ‘authorial violence’ as André Lepecki writes) and personal choice-making and (re)interpretation. She constantly moves between shaping and being shaped. Through the use of video documentation and live performance, audiences are invited to dive into the merging of past and present. It is whilst improvising or re-performing movement material based on different memories from her experience as a dancer that her body multiplies on stage. Those different media have allowed us to witness changes and sameness in order to try and apprehend the complexity, implicity and subtlety of power.
Concept and choreography: Artémise Ploegaerts | Artistic collaborator, film and visuals: Louis Hothothot | Performance and movement research: Elisabeth Schilling | Light: Petyr Veenstra | Sound: extracts from The four seasons Antonio Vivaldi, Le Corsaire Adolphe Adam | Support: Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst, Oostblok, SPAM!, TUFA
The Mood(s) Team has happily celebrated a successful premiere and has now received an exceptional review in the newspaper ‘Das Wort’.
We are celebrating the première of Anu Sistonen’s new piece Mood(s) this week in Luxembourg. It can be seen in the Grand Théâtre on 29th / 30th November 2016.
Finish choreographer Anu Sistonen is a regular at the Grand Théâtre and Mood(s) is her fourth creation to be presented here. Spanning a career of 15 years, her creative journey has been marked by a deep attention given to the interaction between choreographic language and musical language.
Her latest creation Mood(s) is a piece that will combine and integrate the ebb and flow of human emotions. Sistonen’s choreography is passionate, sensitive and moving and features five dancers, singer Stephany Ortega and percussionist Sven Kiefer. Evoking our loneliness and moments of life together, it works towards a succession of phases of individuality and of collective expansion. Sistonen found inspiration for Mood(s) in the works of photographer Miikka Heinonen, in contemporary vocal music and in the fascinating instrument, the marimba.
