!nterpenetration: Darinka Pilari / Samo Kutin ・ AD ASTRA II
Darinka Pilari & Samo Kutin
When home is being on the road, you read your life in the light of the fireflies. Every step you take is a movement that becomes time and time becomes your journey into the unknown. To bring the unknown into light we grow bridges and meet in places that comes as a surprise. The tale will be formed as we realise, we have spoken a silent language into existence.
Told by the language of dance and music.
Darinka Pilári is a dancer connected to the lineage of the Japanese ankoku butō, looking for the in-between places of choreography and improvisation. For her improvisation just as dance is a collective opportunity to look for what we cannot know but understand through feeling movements.
Samo Kutin is known for his use of unconventional instruments, be it instruments that have already disappeared from everyday use or sound-making contraptions that feature strings, wood, pumpkins, stone, glass and waste material. One of the traditional instruments in his repertoire is the Hungarian medieval stringed instrument hurdy gurdy, which he can be seen playing at events of experimental and improvised music.
