Incontri Dance & Drawing with Gabriel Schmitz
For this fourth part, artist Gabriel Schmitz will engage with three elements - sound, dance and drawing - in his new performance at Palazzo Mora
In the fourth part of Icontri (Dance & Drawing), Gabriel Schmitz will be joined by two creators, the dancer/multimedia artist Megumi Eda and the sound artist/composer Reiko Yamada. They will take improvisation to another level as there is no preconceived fixed structure to what the audience will witness. The three elements (sound, dance and drawing) will intertwine and influence each other and undoubtedly leave a trace both on the paper the artist uses for his large scale charcoal drawings and in the spectator's memory.
