“ groove of bach ”
Choreography/Performer : Yoshiya Yoshimitsu
The performer loops through the choral of Bach and hears it in the constrained space on the chair. Every time you loop, the performers deeply participate in music. At the same time, rules are being imposed on the performers according to the music. As a performer is forced to work according to the rules, it also creates a participatory gap with his body. The audience can see the result of the loop process, the work of the performer, and the work.

“ NOISE ”
Overall design：Arnau Milla
We will use Soundpainting language to create a collective piece exploring the limits of our artistic disciplines.
Using our body, our voice, and the interaction between objects and architectonic spaces as a tools to get our own artistic material.
We will look for the personality itself to build a collective perspective.
Noise can be music if we learn how to listen it.
What is Soundpainting?
Soundpainting is the universal multidisciplinary live composing sign language for musicians, actors, dancers, and visual Artists.
The language comprises more than 1200 gestures that are signed by the Soundpainter (composer) to indicate the type of material desired of the performers.
The creation of the composition is realized, by the Soundpainter, through the parameters of each set of signed gestures.
Is a choreography in real time. And a live composing.
Arnau Milla / アルナウ・ミラ

commitment. Always in search of finding connections between the “self” and the “environment”. He’s the artist director of the multidisciplinary company Col·lectiu Free't.
