BIOMASHUP is an energetic tale of movement told through a dance concert performed by six dancers and one musician. Choreographed by Cristian Duarte, this mesmerising work draws on the idea of a “mashup” – a new creation that exists only by bringing together elements and ideas of the past. Experimenting with their bodies as algorithms that organise movement, the performers delve into personal histories of dance, and even explore the possibility of passing on their knowledge of movement to the audience. The dancers move in unison to a remarkable soundtrack composed and performed live by Tom Monteiro on the theremin – one of the first electronic instruments ever invented, and probably the only instrument that can be played without physical contact.
