Germaine Sijstermans & Mami Izumi
An abstract yet organic interplay of shapes, movement and sounds, both alive yet static
Mami Izumi (JP,NL) and Germaine Sijstermans (NL) fuse together for a performance consisting of insinuations and silhouettes.
Germaine is a musician and composer with a great interest in contemporary and abstract music. In her works silence, use of space, and presence in synthesis with playing an instrument often play an important role.
Mami Izumi works as dancer, dance teacher and maker, currently focusing on the development of performances in public spaces, specifically with audience participation. She is interested in physical interaction with space and objects. Through improvisation form Mami researches new movements and the shifting relations between body, space and time.
Because of the succes of last year, this year a second edition of Winternights!
Initiators SoAP & VIA ZUID, together with new partners partners C-Takt, GOTRA, INTRO, FASHIONCLASH and SALLY, proudly invite you to visit Winternights 2017. A nice occasion to get to know the talents of tomorrow, their works and their vision of the world.
Winternights is a preview festival during which creative talents treat the public to ‘finished’ performances, work in progress and experements. On Friday 15 and Saturday 16 December 2017, 17 makers will show their works and what they have to offer in all the nooks and crannies of this nice old factory (AINSI). A collection of makers who are connected in their search for a new language, in theater, visual arts and music; who have left the comfortable pluche of the hall behind them and present their work in unconventional locations. The programme features a selection of young makers assembled by: :
C-Takt, FASHIONCLASH, INTRO, SALLY Dansgezelschap Maastricht, GOTRA I Joost Vrouenraets, SoAP and VIA ZUID
