With artist Giny Vos, cellist Katharina Gross and composer/percussionist Arnold Marinissen. I’m working on an interdisciplinary production titled Pitch Dark. For Pitch Dark, Gross and Marinissen created new work, spinning the musical plot for a performance in which light effects and objects made by Vos & Stenfert Kroese are the actors. In a pitch dark theatre, the senses are provoked in an interplay of sonic, optical and spatial impulses. Acoustic cello sounds, electronica, percussion, field recordings and musique concrete are blent to give rise to a feeling of intimacy and elusiveness.
The light scenes are inspired by the neurophysiological effects that sometimes appear in your vision: the images, afterimages, and movements you see with your eyes closed. These phenomena form the reference points for Giny Vos and Noor Stenfert Kroese’s installation.
