Again The Sunset is where identity is multiplied over and over again by what it touches. It moves. It is a song, a speech and a story… It is a hard rock made hard when you hold it. It is quiet. And then it gets so loud.
Do you remember how real it was that time when we were both so coloured by the sun?
Do you remember how real it was that time when we were both clouds? Or we were one cloud rather, a unified cloud coloured pink by the sun…
Again The Sunset takes the concept of a love song and stretches its form to a physical and visual unfolding of events. Two performers on stage work together to present rational and abstract contemplations on intimacy through song, movement and musical encounters with materiality.
The performance holds many of the characteristics of a concert. The sound world is extra present, physical and aware of its material sources; the inseparability of the body and voice reveals itself as does the inseperability of sound and material. By subtly merging casual intonations with minimal melodies, occasionally transforming them into song, a line is drawn between music and speech. A dance appears as a body remembers imprinted stories from the past. In the manner of a love song, Again The Sunset contemplates relations and borders between theinterrior and exterrior, the exterrior being not only a human subject but also reffering to surrounding environments, objects and forces of nature.
