ARTURO FUENTES: Grace Note (DVD)
Music for the eyes: Lightness, Quickness, Exactitude, Visibility, Multiplicity—a collection of five essays by Italo Calvino forms the thematic basis of the production Grace Note, in which PHACE collaborates with a group of internationally renowned artists: Arturo Fuentes, Austrian choreographer Chris Haring, and Günter Brus. In this interdisciplinary project, the visual, performance art, sound, acoustic instruments and electronics interlock with each other to form a dynamic structure of reaction and interaction, sound and motion. In the manner of a film in which parallel stories and temporal levels come together to form an overall narrative, five scenes are created in which a bodily movement can break a sonic rhythm or a drawn line can touch off a series of new events. PHACE interprets music that is in constant motion, much like a harmonic rain falling fragmentarily onto the bodies present on the stage.
