Stand-Alones are choreographic and musical compositions made up of simultaneously performed solos/duos/trios, which at certain moments of the performance enter a Dialogue with each other, are synchronized and come together to form a polyphony.
Each individual piece is based on an independent music, speech or sound composition. The dramaturgy of the evening enables the visitors to experience the performance individually, according to their own rhythm and is influenced by the spatial arrangement, the movement of the audience and the random order of the individual performances. The Stand-Alones combine to form an overarching sound and performance space whose unstable diversity can be freely and very personally explored by visitors.
Stand-Alones was originally developed by Liquid Loft for the Leopold Museum in Vienna. The concept was subsequently adapted for spaces such as the Musée des Beaux-Arts Nancy and the Musée d’Art Moderne Paris; later versions were created in public space, where the choreographies fit into the existing architecture and surroundings.
With Liquid Loft and PHACE, outstanding soloists and performers from contemporary dance and music meet for the first time at the TransArt Festival and perform in the impressive architecture of the Dr. Schär building in Burgstall.
