“900 02” will premiere on the 20th of October in Leikhúsbatteríið,Reykjavík Iceland.
It is a solo-dance peace made around the minimalistic music peace “The Disintegration Loops” by William Basinski.

The music peace is played for an audience in a theater room. On the stage the lights follow a similar process as the music peace. It deteriorates over a time of 43 minutes from light to darkness. This is not done with a simple fade but by cutting the light systematically more and more over the duration of the performance. This gives the light process a musical quality that will sometimes sync with the music and sometimes counteract it.

The repetitive nature of the music and the musical quality of the lights have a very hypnotic impact on the audience that will get stronger over the duration of the performance.

The big experiment is putting a person in this equation. In this case it a dancer that will perform a dance, non stop over the whole duration of the performance. The dance is synced with the deteriorating music and is executed in the musical changes from pitch black to light.

There are only three performances:

Premiere  20. oktober at 20:00 (þriðjudagur)
22. oktober kl. 20:00 (fimmtudagur)
24. oktober kl. 20:00 (laugardagur)
