Readymade/Dancemate in Ubik, april 24th, 2019



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.

Starting point;
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?
