The video segments vary in length, so that the visual outcome is a constantly changing performance of floating, gliding, dancing and charging animal movements.

Athroa
Zoi Efstathiou, Egil Kalman

In this composition, space, rather than time, is the basis of formal organization, and the experience of the music will be embodied in the process of navigating through space and observing objects from different vantage points. The music is in counterpoint with a light installation which interacts with the sounds and musical textures in non-obvious (non-rhythmical) ways.

Broom as ice-skater
Anne Elisabeth Eckersberg
1 October 2018 - 31 January 2019
