I will carry you over hard times

Performance for percussion player, objects and four channel soundtrack

concept, composition, direction: Falk Hübner

performance: Maarten Zaagman

In I will carry you over hard times a percussion player performs a musical choreography without instruments, miming movements that are synchronized with sounds coming out of four loudspeakers, within an absent setup of classical percussion.

In the course of the performance the initially empty stage becomes filled with objects related to classical percussion playing: various kinds of mallets, music stands, sheet music. The performer get more and more occupied by changing between the different absent instruments and bridging the distance between them in the stage space, ending in a tour de force in which the boundaries between the possible and impossible become very thin.
