Press Release Summary: Mo(ve)ment is a multi-disciplined multi-media show that incorporated live painting projected on a huge screen where a dancer moves to recorded and improvising live musicians.
Press Release Body: After 5 years of performing in the Netherlands and playing festivals in Israel and South Africa, the colorful, creative and improvisational performances of Mo(ve)ment will finally make its US debut.
Mo(ve)ment is a two act multi-discipline live on-stage performance that spotlights energetic dialogue between visual art and modern dance. Benno HŁbner dances in front of a a large screen on which the paintings of Tali Farchi are projected, even as they are being created live for all to see. The connection between the two disciplines develops a conversation that is playful, passionate and at times intimate duet with music that ranges from classical to hiphop.
Mo(ve)ment has been successful before a wide audience, from children to adults. Matinee Shows of Mo(ve)ment designed especially for familys will be presented at the Impact Theater in Brooklyn each of the three days they will be in town. \"This is performance art accessible to younger audiences.\" (Sunday World, July 2, 2006)
The artists of Mo(ve)ment are also involved in educational projects. Both HŁbner and Farchi have experience in teaching at primary and secondary schools as well as to students and adults, offering workshops and courses in their discipline. Especially for Mo(ve)ment they both developed a workshop focusing on the expression of music in visual arts and dance.
