In 2013 the young dancer Edivaldo Ernesto from the company of Sasha Waltz & Guests and the internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Hauschka met for the first time on stage, as initiated by the series of UM:LAUT. Following two nights at radialsystem, much to the acclaim of both audience and press, as well as several guest performances in Germany and abroad, the two exceptional artists now return to the place of their first encounter. After six intense and productive years full of new experiences and numerous achievements, Hauschka and Edivaldo Ernesto re-enter an artistic dialogue in order to abandon the safety of composition and choreography: an improvised interplay of sound and movement, without the corset of a predetermined course, open for unexpected developments, spontaneity and the impulses of each other.
UM:LAUT is a live platform for artists and labels availing themselves of various musical traditions, realising ambitious and unique projects regardless of genre boundaries. The focus of the series, which is curated by Ben Czernek and Hannes Frey, lies on the experimental range between classical and electronic instrumentation, composition and improvisation, club and concert hall. Considering itself an open stage for cooperations between artists of different disciplines, UM:LAUT aims to present music in dialogue with other art forms – music giving impulses to film, video, photography, installation, dance and performance. A field of experimentation for cooperations of artists from different disciplines.
