HEAR EYES MOVE relies on intensive research into György Ligeti’s works and methods and produces an intricate nexus in which Ligeti’s complex music meets Elisabeth Schilling’s choreographies. Music and dance thus begin to grow alongside and into each other, as contiguous forms bringing about a dance-concert and a concert-dance full of captivating multi-sensorial imagery, where no form or medium ultimately dominates the other. Here, too, interdependence is the name of the game, and it is a condition of life. Can you hear your eyes move?

Collaboration between Elisabeth Schilling and the Ensemble United Instruments of Lucilin, allows the choreographer to draw on her earlier work and use Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Partita for Violin n°1 in B minor” (BWV 1002) in order to explore how movements and textures, both musical and physical, overlap, merging again and again.

A new group piece for five dancers choreographed by Elisabeth Schilling. Interweaving the sensibilities of dance and contemporary music, it explores the sonic and dynamic textures of our worlds as well as their complex patterns of change. In an environment of mutual immersion, the dancers sense their relations, ceaselessly making and unmaking them, creating temporary communities. Across the seasons, there is florescence as well as decay.
