Greetings, dear readers!
It’s been a whole year since I last checked in with you all, and what a year it has been! In this time, I’ve faced numerous professional challenges and, I’m pleased to say, gained a wealth of valuable experience. Today, I’m excited to share with you a recap of my endeavors over the past year and provide a glimpse into my plans for the future.
Music and Sound Design
One of the highlights of 2023 was the release of not one, but two albums: “SHERES” and “Heartbeat in Space.” These musical creations are now available for your listening pleasure on popular platforms like Spotify and various other music streaming services. Crafting these albums was a labor of love, and I’m thrilled to have shared them with the world. These albums of textured soundscapes are a creative treasure for choreographers, videomakers, and film directors seeking to craft captivating visual narratives. Diving into empty halls and imaginative realms, where music and atmosphere intertwine.
My journey in the world of sound design continued as I collaborated with a dynamic choreographer duo who lead the Miller De’Nobili company. Together, we brought “Don’t you Dare!” to life on the grand stage of the Festspielhaus HELLERAU in November 2022. The excitement doesn’t stop there; we already have our sights set on the next captivating production, promising yet another thrilling creative process.
In October 2022, I embarked on a research project as part of the Palucca University of Dance Dresden program. This project is close to my heart as it aims to develop educational materials for dancers, enabling them to establish a stronger connection between their art and the auditory world. The past year was dedicated to intensive theoretical research, laying the groundwork for the upcoming phases of this project. The next two semesters will be devoted to testing the practical application of the exercises.
In the realm of choreography, I had a remarkable experience in April 2023 at the Budapest Dance Festival. It was there that I had the privilege to present a stage adaptation of my dance film “Passage” during a double premiere. The same evening, I made my return to the stage with a solo performance titled “Feel Me.” As the year draws to a close, I’m delighted to share that I’ll be choreographing a piece for the Gdansk Ballet School. Titled “The Spirit of Gravity,” this performance will be presented on the Opera Baltic stage in December 2023. The piece draws inspiration from the philosophical writings of Friedrich Nietzsche, particularly his exploration of the “spirit of gravity” in the Thus Spoke of Zarathustra.
In conclusion, this past year has been a whirlwind of artistic growth and accomplishment across the domains of music, sound design, research, and choreography. I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities that have come my way, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds as I continue to pursue my creative journey. Stay tuned for more updates and exciting developments on the horizon!
TIME – The Baker’s Hour – On 21 September, we presented a new evening with G.G. Dance – Eger. The full-length performance, Long-Haired Despair, was based on the novel by Hungarian writer Géza Gárdonyi. I was one of the five choreographers presenting my new work, and I also created the original soundtrack for the whole evening. The 22/23 season started with many new challenges and exciting adventures.
Master of Arts research – After receiving my Master of Arts degree in early September 2022, my two-year research programme was accepted and supported by Palucca Dance University Dresden. For the next two years I will be conducting in-depth research on the topic of “Musicality in Dance Education and Choreographic Practice”. The demanding work ahead of me will require numerous consultations with dance professionals from a wide spectrum of styles, from classical ballet to break/urban dance.
Don’t you Dare – I have recently embarked on an exciting new musical creation for artist duo Chiara de’Nobili and Alexander Miller. The premiere of the full-length work will take place on 18 November 2022 at the Hellerau in Dresden.
PASSAGE – Dance film
Between two states in life there is always a moment when we are surrounded by emptiness. The old self is terminated, the new self has not yet been born. This moment is scary, it is liberating, it is mystical. Since the dawn of socio-cultural activities of humanity, we developed specific ceremonies to lead through people to another stage of life. These transformative rituals are the main inspirations of the dance film “Passage”
This film is created as the diploma work for the Master of Choreography degree in the Palucca University of Dance Dresden. I spent several months conceptual research in the field of cultural anthropology to theoretically support my work on the topic. During the choreographic process I was developing abstract illustrations of these complex socio-cultural relations. The final result of this work will be premiered on the 1. July 2022. Stay tuned!!
Even though the last two seasons were a difficult time for all who work in the performing arts field since the summer, many things were going on in my professional career. Let’s have an overview of my latest works.
Bridging Dimensions – Der Erkenende /Dessau/: We started the season with a premier of an interdisciplinary project at the BAUHAUS Festival in Dessau. The frame In-Pact collective presented a duett on the historical Appia stage in the BAUHAUS Museum.
Think Big Festival / Hannover/: I was commissioned for a music production by the young Portuguese choreographer Anibal Dos Santos. For last week’s musical creation process the Staatsballett Hannover hosted us in their facilities. Such a nice experience to work with a well prepared young artist as Anibal.
Ambivalent Gleams / Dresden/: As part of my Master studies I have been working with five of the bachelor students of the Palucca University of Dance Dresden. In this master study program our education as a choreographer, built on the education of the bachelor dance students, therefore the creation process had ideal conditions for experimenting with new ideas.
New adventures are coming
