Detour on Route to a Movie – Dudendance Theatre & Fabiana Galante
31st October 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Free event/booking required. Doors open 6.30
Following their head-turningly unforgettable public presence at this year’s Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Dudendance Theatre return to Hawick with Detour on Route to a Movie, a double-bill of new movies accompanied by live piano and synth by Fabiana Galante.
Dudendance Theatre create work that defies a singular interpretation having pioneered an original voice by layering film, soundtrack, narrative and movement. Each new piece exists within an ever evolving narrative whereby characters re-emerge in later work. Very often live performance is transposed into film- shifting from the rehearsal studio onto location and then re-absorbed into live work. The starting point remains physical and devised from rigorous research with international collaborators as well as non-professionals. Some work exists purely on film and has been screened in galleries and cinemas. Dudendance also create site-specific pieces, most recently as durational work in public spaces.
Fabiana Galante, pianist and sound artist from Buenos Aires, has been working in the contemporary music scene in Argentina since the 1990s. Her main interest lies in musical interpretation and creation away from the ‘concert’ environment. This has led her to work with musicians, filmmakers, improvisers and performers on experimental collaborative projects in Argentina, Chile, Brazil, United Kingdom and Germany. Currently, Fabiana teaches at UNTREF (Tres de Febrero University, Buenos Aires) and is working on several projects with composers, improvisers and multidisciplinary artists.
