The global health crisis the world is going through has changed the habits and mentalities of the audience and of the artists, at the start of a new era. Turning more than ever towards digital formats, the world of the performing arts must reinvent itself and develop a new type of relationship with the audience; it is necessary to offer an experience differing from the concert hall format
– in order to replace it in the short term, and to complement it in the long term. In this context, the art collective SIBJA, together with Teresa Rotemberg (choreographer) and Neckar Doll (video), explores new relationship between film, dance and contemporary music. The video format, although widely used in many forms of “popular” music, remains hardly used in classical or contemporary practices; and when it is, it rarely offers more than a demonstrative virtuosity, a decorative aesthetic, or a streaming. SIBJA offers a different path: not a videoclip, but a film without words, in which music and visuals interact to shape the story in a transdisciplinary way.
