RIVER memory pieces
Within the project series TRANS ART WORKS, Tanz Atelier Wien presents “RIVER memory pieces“ – an interdisciplinary format, which links international artists and their work in the fields of music, dance and visual arts (installation).
Based on the piano play „Memory Pieces“ by American composer David Lang, the concept arises to create a kinetic art installation which fosters music and dance.
The exemplary installation by Swiss artist Silvia Grossmann will serve as anchor and pivot point for the dance artists Alexsandro Guerra (Brazil), Kuei-Ju Tung (Taiwan) and choreographer and dancer Sebastian Prantl. Pianist Cecilia Li creates the musical dramaturgy of David Lang’s oeuvre.
In the spirit of TRANS ART WORKS, the event „RIVER memory pieces“ follows the approach of interdisciplinarity and functions as a creative space for mutual, inspiring exchange that links different artistic and scientific disciplines.
