An evening from the Readymade series for improvised music; Dancers, movers, artists, confectioners and musicians meet in a space to explore and exchange ideas about interdisciplinary improvisation and performance.
We believe in challenging the status quo, finding new ways to connect dance and music, and composing live, on site, directly through improvisation. Also recognize the comfort zone to outgrow it.
Music and dance are viewed through the same lens of instant composition.
Option 1; The sound inspires movement in the bodies of the dancers / movers and the body creates the impulse for making sound (and making silence) for the musicians.
Option 2; None of this happens, but a strange gathering of disparate activities unfolds that irritates attention or, worse, irritates.
Ask; Is the perception of sound and movement just as important as producing it?

location: Wunderbar – Boomgaardsstraat, Rotterdam march 31th, 2019
Anticlan’s music is fully improvised. The trio plays adventurous, organic and spontaneous music, which sometimes intensifies with the use of distorted guitars and more heavy drums. They play with great dynamic variation and touches of melody amidst wild and fiery sections.
Philipp Ernsting – drums
Josue Amador – guitar
Hugo Costa – saxophone

The CCE was funded in 2015 at the composition department off the Rotterdam Conservatory ( Codarts ).

This time the CCE will feature:
