Synesthetic Project: Tour
by Nika Bauman
Three productions, six performances, three videos
Synesthetic Project is a multidisciplinary ensemble lead by the Vienna-based flutist Nika Bauman. We are an international cast of musicians, dancers, animators and videographers molded into specific formations depending on the project. Through an interplay of music, dance and video, we explore concepts and tell stories of diversity, understanding, tolerance, communication, of mutual giving and receiving. The past year has been hard on the performing arts, but we have emerged from the winter sleep with three productions ready for the road: Itinerant, Decameron 2.0 and LUX! We have scheduled performances for June, September and October in Vienna, Innsbruck and Zagreb. However, since the number of people in the audience is limited, and the times remain uncertain, we have also decided to record all three productions on video and release them online for everyone to enjoy!
Dive into the world of travellers with «Itinerant», contemplate the quarantine through «Decameron 2.0» and battle the darkness with the light of «LUX»! With a playfull cast of musicians, dancers and multimedia artists, our pieces provoke thought, sympathy, sometimes confusion… but above all, joy. We aren’t afraid to cross boundaries of genre, media and physical strength in order to share our stories and our love with the audience.
Vienna: June 17th (Decameron 2.0) September 25th (Itinerant) October 30th (LUX)
Zagreb: September 4th&5th (Itinerant)
Innsbruck: September 28th (Itinerant)
The travel, the recording, the tests!
In order to record the pieces professionally and have them contain the excitement of a live performance as well as the aesthetics of a movie, we have joined forces with the fabulous Austrian filmmaker Fabian Krempus and his production company KRAEMPUS. Your contribution will help us cover the lacking funds for the video production, as well as the costs of the tour: travel, accommodation, rehearsal room rents, antigen tests and so on.
