ARC session SEI & DUE

Scheltema, Leiden (NL)

SEI & DUE are two chapters of the ongoing collaboration between Suzan Tunca and Giuliano Bracci: dance and music navigate on the edge between improvisation and choreography, between immediate intuitive action and pre-determined acoustic and choreographed movements.

In SEI, Suzan dances on a solo violin composition by Johan Sebastian Bach remixed live by Giuliano Bracci. The presence of different and parallel tracks of the piece serves the search for inhabiting a multitude of body morphologies in dialogue with the acoustic dimensions unfolding around Bach’s composition.

For DUE, Giuliano wrote a new composition based on an improvised dance sequence by Suzan where she worked from an intermediary zone of awareness between conscious and not yet conscious movement origination.

In the dance of SEI & DUE, Suzan searches for a space of creative convergence and infinite potential between the polar opposite forces of gravity and levity, concentric and peripheral impulses, active and passive psychophysical tonality and the communicative potential of dialoguing with these forces through the dancing body and in dialogue with the acoustic landscapes.
