Happy Medium is Jesse Passenier’s (festival composer) interdisciplinairy improvisation project.
During this edition Passenier – playing keys – invites dancer Audrey Apers through the Dutch Dance Festival for an improvisation around the fountain on the festival square. The goal: To have the different media – music, dance and surroundings – communicate on an even plane! A conversation comes about in which the problem of “speaking different languages” is overcome.
“Why should a festival composer do an improvisation?” Passenier was wondering…
“Because an improvisation like this is nothing less than instant composing”.
