The inspiration for the work Ref2020 has been Brian Eno’s 58-minute-long composition Reflection. The work, created with six dancers, suggests a new kind of connection between contemporary dance and Eno’s music where the meditative music creates singing and historicity of movement.
In every moment and continually, the dancers modify their movement paths with microscopic precision by observing the dialogue between movement and mind and by making constant choices about space and timing. The rich and unpredictable movement language acts at times as a counterpoint to the soundscape and sometimes independently, without a primary relationship to the music.
Ref2020 is a light work in dark times. The music and dance create a landscape inside which the viewer can allow him/herself to experience floating, timelessness and dreams that occasionally remind us about a past that perhaps never was.
