Artist in Residence at ‘de Lievelinge’
A response to surrounding.

A collaboration between Butoh dancers Margarita (Taiwan), Yi (China) and Droomdata during the artist in Residency at de Lievelinge in June 2019.
Butoh is a form of dance/theater/expression that was created in Japan after world war two. It is an art that is associated with pain, taboes and expression, however multi-interpreted across the world and through the ages. Dancer Margarita and Yi both studied the art of Butoh performance and have been traveling and performing their craft. Butoh is a performance that is felt by the viewer, where expression through the body takes hold.

The performance was musically assisted with a soundscape, using found sounds from in and around the Lievelinge. Thereafter layered with live vocals and synthesizer, attempting to create a melancholic whole to assist the dramatic, sensitive and powerful movements of the Butoh dancers.
The piece was created as a response to our surrounding, and a conversation between movement and sound.

Found sounds from around the Lievelinge, guitar, synthesizer and poetry. Transformed into a 25 minute live headphone concert.

‘Stromen uitgesneden door de mond van regen
Voel ik me bekeken door de ogen van de berkenbomen
Door de harde wind applaudisseren de bladeren op hun tak
Voor een voor mij onbekende zaak
Groots en belangrijk zal het wezen
Ontvang ik het even
En word ik herinnerd aan de andere waarheid
Door het gepiep van het molletje dat dient als avondmaal voor de ooievaar
Reorganiseer ik mijn gedachten, zorgt een plek voor een andere blik
Als het herinrichten van mijn kamer, verschuif ik stoel en tafel
In gedachten.’
