» New Eyes

  

New Eyes is the outcome of a research trip in Mexico, the US and Brazil by choreographer Carima Neusser, visual artist Per Hüttner with music composed by Siri Jennefelt.

The performance includes newly composed music, choreography, slideshows, smells, tastings and videos. Inspiration is taken from from baroque churches, Mexican soap operas, research on bats, meetings with representatives of the Apache nation, street food modernist Brazilian literature and includes something called “baby creatures.” The work is like the journey it describes: it that can not be understood rationally, but has to be experiences with all five senses – just as you cannot seize the magic of the night without allowing madness to enter your mind.

  

The artists synthesize an experience for the audience by extracting four moods or situations. Based on these, they create collages where different impression merge into new constellations. In each part, the artists start from impressions, feelings paradoxical and interconnected phenomena instead trying to recount what they experienced rationally.
