untitled movements with a drummer coming a little later
The title is not a joke: the drummer actually appears later when things really get cooking. First, young men prowl around each other like panthers, they bump each other as quick as a flash, then withdraw, lie in wait with anticipation, then strike again. This cool Japanese form of dance without aspirations of professionalism is presented in a piece where sound and movement are entirely improvised. The dance, which infuses contact improvisation with Hunter S. Thompson’s “Gonzo” aesthetics, was invented by the four-member collective (including a graffiti artist and a photographer) contact Gonzo from Osaka, who were invited to perform at the MoMA in New York, among other places. The supercharged aesthetics is clearly palpable in the session untitled movements with a drummer coming a little later. And it increases even more when the drummer, who is not part of the group, finally joins them. And not just any drummer, either: Balázs Pándi from Hungary, internationally famous for his collaborations with Venetian Snares, Otto Von Schirach (as 666 Cent), Zu and Merzbow, to name but a few!
