[strings] + Bud Blumenthal  + Walter Hus + David Deprieste

Image and body are keywords in the choreographic research of American choreographer Bud Blumenthal, who settled in Belgium in 1992 and created a dozen dance performances. STANDING WAVE is an extreme interplay between image, movement and ultrasound. Like the instruments of the string quartet – live on stage – each of the four dancers has its own frequency, its own amplitude. Within this abstract universe, primary human behaviours emerge: desire, conquest, violence, reconciliation, seduction. The chilly cosmos becomes intimate: the infinite becomes ephemeral; the abstract becomes simply human. The audience is carried along on these waves of sound and movement.
