We warmly invite you to join us for a series of three performances by the Rotterdam-based artist Toine Horvers in which the monumental Justus van Effencomplex—where A Tale of A Tub resides—takes centre stage. Horvers’ performative work strongly relates to the disciplines of dance, music and sound poetry. The works are strictly designed movements/movement sequences in which the physical and the vocal are inextricably linked.
Horvers will perform a collection of his recent series of rotational vocal movements in the acoustics of both the bathhouse and courtyards of the renovated social housing complex from the 1920s.
— Rotation 1, 2, 3 (solo, bathhouse)
— Aran Islands (solo, bathhouse)
— Inis Oírr Panorama N.E.S.W (solo, bathhouse)
— Double Rotation 1 (premiere) in collaboration with Geert van Mil in two oppositional courtyards behind the bathhouse.
Toine Horvers recently stayed in Istanbul and India in order to experience the relation between forms and procedures in ritual and ceremonial music, and how these resonate with his own work as an artist. These meetings resulted in an ongoing series of physical and vocal movement studies: Rotations and Spirals.
