UM:LAUT are happy to present two special events bringing together two talented artists.
The internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Volker Bertelmann alias Hauschka meets the young Mozambican dancer Edivaldo Ernesto from the company of Sasha Waltz & Guests.
In two nights, the two of them abandon the safety of composition and choreography, joining each other in an improvised interplay of sound and movement.

They enter an artistic dialogue without the corset of a predetermined course, open for unexpected developments, spontaneity and the impulses of each other.
Hauschka is regarded as one of the most remarkable modern proponents of the prepared piano. With relatively simple means, he explores the tonal diversity of the keyboard instrument with metal pieces, foils and other objects placed inside the piano or attached to the strings.

The resulting percussive or rustling sounds, which make one assume the usage of percussions and electronic devices, give the atmospherically dense, rhythm-based compositions a lyrical quality.
Edivaldo Ernesto has collaborated with numerous artists and choreographers like David Zambrano, Mat Voorter, Robert Hilton, or Faustin Linyekula after having received traditional and classical dance trainings in Mozambique.

Sasha Waltz engaged him for the first time for her project “Dialoge Freiburg” at e-Werk Freiburg in 2005. Since 2008 a constant member of the ensemble of Sasha Waltz & Guests, Edivaldo can be experienced in numerous productions of the company worldwide.
With his unique and expressive style, he is considered one of the most remarkable and fascinating protagonists of the dance scene in Berlin.
