Description:
Wondering, elusive, multilayered and sometimes undecided - Disturbing Light is an experience in image and sound where the phenomenon 'time' sometimes gets entirely its own mind. In this co-production of visual artist Marij Janssen and composer Rieteke Hölscher a natural moving installation is floating in the air. The artist designed a cloud of figures that confuses the light and creates strange shadows on the wall. Each character tries to maintain its identity and to escape from the swarm. As an observer you might have the illusion that you will be drawn into the movement. Meanwhile the same human-like figures pass by in a video projected on the wall in an everchanging movement, accompanied by acoustic instruments - violin and piano - and electronical music with the sounds of nature, like seagulls, thunder, waves and wind.
During a performance of half an hour image and music enter into a dialogue. Inverted 'musique concrète' and recognizable minimalistic motifs will create a synergy between image and sound that reflects the illusion of endlessness and almost undeniable raises questions about the universe and life itself.
