Sonate für Pumpen und Tüten

The airtight, welded plastic bags and pumps on these self-made instruments are attached to the body. The choreography is defined by movement sequences which compress or inflate the flexible instruments in the dance. Air travels through the valves and creates a wide spectrum of sound structures – this influences the dance flow.
