Choreographer Marie Topp and Julia Giertz started to collaborate in 2014, and have been working together closely every since.
They have a shared interest in the sensing body, moving through the less known landscapes of perception.
Currently Giertz is developing sound and music for Topp’s new trilogy named “Soft Space Vision”. So far, this research has taken place at MDT (Stockholm), Atalante (Gothenburg), Milvus Artistic Research Center (Kivik). The piece LIAISONS will premiere at MDT in Stockholm april 2018.
In 2015 Topp was artist in residence at Kampnagel K3, Hamburg, where Giertz created the music for the solo “The Visible Effects of Force”.
In 2014 Giertz created music for Topp’s solo “Forerunning”, developed in Dansehallerne Copenhagen and Workspace Brussels.
Here is an excerpt from the performance “The Visible Effects of Force” created for 4 surround speakers and one sub. Please note that the stereo version will not give the same physical experience.
