The latest performance by Conny Janssen Danst, FRAMED, is a visually assembled narrative in which live dance, film footage and music converge and create a collaborative world.
In FRAMED the viewer is introduced to twelve characters, all residents from the same city. A concatenation of scenes reveals what connects them; at which point their individual lives meet without being conscious of it.
In FRAMED there is a new role for video. Conny Janssen works together with set designer Thomas Rupert and filmmaker Davide Bellotta. A 33 m2 LED screen represents the shell of the city like an abstract painting. The film images serve as a light source and sensor for the adventurous group of dancers – young talent as well as familiar faces. The music in FRAMED is a varied soundtrack that moves between crystal clear classical music and cinematic urban soundscapes.
