Music and movement performance
Idea and performers: Sakurako and Phil Von
Composer; Phil Von
Costume Designer: Radvilė Juozapaitytė
Photographer: Laura Vansevičienė
For the opening of the dance festival AURA 32 Phil Von and Sakurako are creating and presenting a piece of site-specific music and movement performance titled “Mudu” (Both of us) in Romuva. The dialogue between the visual artist, butoh dancer and choreographer Sakurako and the composer and performer, as well as the dancer and poet Phil Von, will be multi-layered – the real-life and stage partners will speak the language of the body, listen attentively to each other and the space, respond to the impulses and stimulus of each other's and other bodies in the room, and attempt to speak through the space, creating a dialogue with the audience and maybe even with the spirits.
The audience will be invited to immerse themselves together in the emergent mystical atmosphere and embark on a journey, witnessing the subtle transformations of the encounters between the two nomadic souls, where a gesture, a look, the most delicate movement or a tone of voice will hold a great deal that will be interpreted by each in their own way, creating a collective experience of the here and now.
