The sculpture performance Chorós was conceived by Philipp Dreber and developed together with the Performers Marje Hirvonen, Markus Tomcyzk and the Cellist Daniel Brandl. Photographer and video artist Alessandro De Matteis joined the group to extend the multi disciplinary project with his contribution. Chorós is a symbol of the unity in the diversity. That’s how the project was realized, since artists from different orientations come together to work on one idea.
A chorus alike different voices come together in order to create a harmony.
In the beginning was the word. Out of four separate equal elements using their individual expression, the motion, stability and sound, become a field of two poles. The dancers interact in constant motion sharing the field of these two poles; the music and the sculpture.
Within the dialogue of the four fundamentals, in the search for their limits and continuously changing relations, the sculpture finally takes another form. The stability has broken into different compositions of its pieces, into ideas, images and endless possibilities. The roles and the outlines of the four bases are questioned:
Where does the sculpture end and the performance begin?
The center, the seed, smelts finally the two dancers inseparably together, but the sculpture has been divided into pieces. These pieces create a landscape for the seed to grow – a new beginning.
