D__ANCE 
FOR THE DISAPPEARED

Interdisciplinary collaboration between Visual Artist Chantal Meza, Dance artists Catherine Guerin, Miriam Markl and Elisabeth Kaul and Composer John Psathas.

In this event, framed by the Album Corybas; a melodic composition performed by New Zealand Chamber Soloists, The New Zealand String Quartet, Stephen Gosling & The New Zealand Trio, the Dancers will perform while the Painter attempts to capture their movements on canvas in real time. The visual effects are then further intensified when, together with the painter, the dancers trace their own movements with paint, leaving traces of their otherwise fleeting motions on the canvas. These will later become part of the finished painting. The audience experiences LIVE, the process of creating an artwork.

This dynamic collaboration invites us to think about the phenomenon of disappearance: how we understand this concept in art, while challenging us to reflect on our own subjective everyday experiences of disappearance.

The spectacle includes a short, thematic related dance workshop for all interested in the performance of disappearance, entitled, Displacements and Disappearances, which is part of the Moving Your Stories project von Catherine Guerin in collaboration with Miriam Markl and Elisabeth Kaul.
