No-Destination Flight

55 minutes dance & concert performance

Acker Stadt Palast Berlin (DE)

The whole performance is a delicate balance of music and dance in subtle communications. The musicians become movers and the dancer develops a keen sense of listening. Eventually the dancer includes the concrete physical touch to influence and to sustain the sound composition and the choreography.

The dance and concert performance is in two parts. The first part is created and performed by Ingólfur Vilhjálmsson/bass clarinet and Mariangela Tinelli/dance and lasts for 20 minutes. The second part is created and performed by composer Elo Masing/violin and in collaboration with as well as performed by Ingolfur Vilhjalmsson and Mariangela Tinelli and takes 30 minutes.

No-Destination Flight is an intimate work that explores the idea of being touched by (vast) landscapes. Those landscapes transformed to sound, to physical states and sensual intuitions are open imaginative places and abstractions. The title suggests: It's all about the journey, not about getting there! It is taken from the Australian Flight Travel arranged during the pandemic, where a flight would take you all around the continent for 8 hours and drop you off at the starting point.
