Killing you Softly goes on tour (composition for dance theatre)

last week was the premiere of Killing you softly, a multimedia dance theatre piece by Tikka Tibrewala, featuring projected video, interviews and a soundtrack i composed.

Tikka is energetic and boistrous. In her work, she uses this in-your-face personality strategically: dissarming you with tongue-in-cheek, but then she clearly puts social tensions on the table like an investigative journalist, narrating the story with a rhetoric of bodily gestures.

The show starts with a projection screen as large as the audience itself confronting them with their own image as a live stream camera scans through the crowd, pausing occasionally on one person. Meanwhile tikka is stood infront of a grid of black and white portraits, one by one, she erases them with black paint.
