Deconstructing musical narratives, to isolate and reconnect emotional drives, two dancers and one musician define action, context and environment in a movement-audio-abstract. Story-telling and sentiments are extracted from a play by Ibsen and a musical composition by Grieg; transforming into intuition and instinct. Within the multitude of characters in a musical voyage Peer seeks to isolate singular essences; pure touch, sound, feeling, human, nature. In pursuit of a tangible-sonic vision, laying open sublime connections, the piece draws a world of color and imagery in a self contained, poetic universe.
