With Hear Eyes Move. Dances with Ligeti, Elisabeth Schilling creates a unique and original choreographic interpretation of the Etudes pour piano by Hungarian composer György Ligeti. Movement and acoustics form one and become intrinsically linked “growth organisms”.

“Have two art forms ever had a closer and more complex relationship than music and dance? But how does music actually move? How does dance “sound”? And where do these sounds and movements come together, once they are freed from their alleged duty to mimic or reflect, to illustrate, to produce atmosphere, to provide a backdrop, or even simply to coexist in a clear separation?”
