Myriam Gourfink and Kasper Toeplitz
Monday 18
TOO GENERATE : we made choreography and music at the same time, considering the body as an abstract volume, and sound as motion, or stillness - they are equal and bring a new approach to the usual process of such a project: the music is neither a support nor an accompaniment to the movement, the dance is not "on" the music; the technical apparatus - sound system, computer and musician - stands front stage, blocking the audience's view; Gourfink,dance and Toeplitz, music/computer

Phill Niblock 6pm to midnight,
Thursday 21
Six hours of music and film/video, for his 67th winter solstice, with some guest performers; the days will get longer from now on, or at least until June 21
