The Instrument
Peer
Story and sentiments from Ibsen's text and Grieg's music; transform into physical gestures in a choreographic voyage. Within a multitude of events, the work seeks to isolate singular essences; pure touch, sound, nature, emotion. In pursuit of a tangible-sonic script, laying open sublime connections; Peer draws a world of visual-musical poetry through its landscape.
