New Adventures 19/20 Residency #3

In this series, several research projects are selected each year for an intensive residency project. For four weeks, theatre and studio are used by these makers as laboratories for innovation in dance, often across multiple disciplines. In this last residency of the 19/20 season, Charlie Trier works with Cristina Kristal Rizzo on their research project. Their collaboration during this period runs via screens.

RESIDENCY PERIOD: 9 Apr t/m 9 May 2020


Hypernating research

In ‘Hypernating’ Charlie and Cristina are working towards dis-positioning a singular voice – wanting it to become multiple. They imagine voice and body as a radio in motion, falling into different frequencies, speaking words that could be songs, but also myths. They work with auto-tune, modulation and rhythm as a method to shake meaning.
In darkness, the seemingly narrational voices deliver suggestive and teasing messages, evoking images, which are immediately reabsorbed into space. Bodies move with minimal gestures, manipulating screens and objects that appear as luminous gleams, to shape artificial becomings half way between the physical and visionary.


Sound could be the subtlest element of the perceptible material.
Perhaps it’s a love-song.
