Ashley Ho & Domenik Naue – songs for friends: a vinyl (NL)

songs for friends: a vinyl is een album dat we voor jullie hebben gemaakt. Dit is een plaat van verlies, en ook van opgroeien – wat bijna hetzelfde is. Terwijl de plaat van buiten naar binnen speelt, groeien de ringen van een boom van binnen naar buiten. De tijd spiraliseert en wij slaan er touw over. In deze huiskamer raken analoge en digitale lichamen verstrikt; herinneringen vallen uit elkaar, ontsierd door storingen. Geweld en intimiteit geven zich hier met tederheid aan elkaar over. Trekken, duwen, trekken. Dit is de plek waar we onszelf hebben gecreëerd. Kom maar binnen. Alles is even geconstrueerd als het echt is.

Ashley Ho & Domenik Naue – songs for friends: a vinyl (EN)

Here is an album we have made for you. This is a record of loss, and also of growing up – which is almost the same thing. As the record plays from outside-in, the rings of trees are growing from inside-out. Time is spiralling and we skip rope across it. Welcome to this living room. Here, memories dismantle, marred by glitches; violence and intimacies yield to each other with tenderness. Pull, push, pull. In the emergent speculative realities, we navigate dissociation and change. This is the place where we created ourselves. Come on in. All is as constructed as it is real. songs for friends: a vinyl developed out of the physicality of rope-skipping, a long afternoon of reminiscence, and a co-reading of Hermann Hesse’s Kinderseele and Demian (two novels that delve into a child’s experiences of guilt and shame, of light and shadow). Domenik and Ashley grew up on
opposite ends of the world. In this transmedial performance, they have built a shared world out of fractured memories that are charged with violence and intimacy. Each element – choreography, text, scenography, and sound – has been crafted by them, by hand. By placing separate memories into the same space, they activate speculative realities in which they navigate hurt, dissociation and change, no longer alone but together. The performance offers a personal, visceral, and sometimes puzzling experience that invites spectators to connect through their own memories.

Gaja Caruso – Crisis of Comfort (NL)

Wat is de troost die we zoeken in onszelf en de anderen? Wat is de betekenis van liefde en intimiteit
in de hedendaagse tijd?
Naast iemand slapen is de meest intieme daad.
In een plastic bed vallen twee dansers in slaap, We volgen hun slaapcycli en zien hoe hun bewustzijn
en onderbewustzijn troost zoeken in dans. Een muzikale compositie gemaakt van trillingen en
opdringerige gedachten.

Gaja Caruso – Crisis of Comfort (EN)

What is the comfort that we search for within ourselves and the others? What is the meaning of love
and intimacy in the specificity of contemporary era?
To sleep next to someone is the most intimate act.
Two dancers fall asleep. Following the dramaturgy of their sleep cycles, we see their conscious and
subconscious minds seek comfort through dance. Set to a musical composition made out of vibrations
and intrusive thoughts.
