As a duo, City Art Rotterdam presents a special evening of music&dance improvisation with Italian dancer Manuela Tessi and Dutch guitar player Arvind Ganga. For more info on the artists see below.

At City Art Rotterdam, Insulindestraat 248 in Rotterdam. Evening starts at 20.00. Entrance is €4; all proceedings go to the artists. During the evening there is plenty of opportunity to view the great collection of art in the building. Hope to see you!

El Otro is the duo of dancer Manuela Tessi and guitar player Arvind Ganga. Two individuals mix the mood of the space and the energy of the audience with their own temperament and intensity and express that through instantly composed music and dance. A journey to their inner souths, where the sun is blistering hot and the loins call the shots, transforming a dusty sleepy town into a desperado inferno in the blink of an eye. In their performance they blur the boundaries between audience and performers, and often perform in non-theatrical spaces. This allows them to play with attention and behaviour of the audience, responding to their movement and sound material.

Arvind Ganga is a guitar player from Den Haag, the Netherlands. He takes a physical approach to guitar playing, employing objects and extended techniques to explore new sonic territory. His music draws from influences as diverse as noise and drones, North Indian ragas, experimental rock, and everyday sounds. Using free improvisation he brings these together into an intense, loosely structured, chaotic mesh that is bathing in the rays of a deep red sun. Ethereal noise with a punk-improv attitude. Arvind plays solo, improvises with like-minded musicians, and is active in music/dance improvisation. His music took him to play squats, galleries, clubs and festivals from Poland to Portugal, Turkey, Chile and Perú.

ARVIND GANGA @ bad mo’ risin’ — 9 aug 14

http://www.arvindganga.nl

As a duo, Gosia and Arvind have been playing on and off since the summer of 2011. In the meantime, they formed the international music/dance quartet Help Me To Crash with drummer Onno Govaert and dancer Maria Mavridou, with which they performed throughout Poland and the Netherlands. As a duo, they investigate a performance with free improvised music and free improvised dance, and the possible relation between music and dance. They want to keep independence, yet create togetherness at the same time. They look for expression that stands firm, is free and rocking, can be quiet or loud but it should always be strong. “How deep can we go with this?”
