TAKE ME TO THE AIRPORT, YOU FUTURISTIC CREATURES is an interdisciplinary performance involving music, video projection and dance. During her residency at Zaratan in the month of November, Golden Diskó Ship created a new 13minute long track alsongside with a video to turn the rooms of the artspace into a live sound and light bath filled with 4 mysterious performers with one destination: Get off Planet Earth before it is too late.
The dancers act as flexible elements and hybrids between human beings and living projection screens. They mingle with the audience, encouraging them to move around the space freely during the performance. The music is a mix of electronics and live instruments and vocals, a journey into the borderlands between experimental pop hymns, solemn soundscapes and heavy drum machine breakdowns.
Golden Diskó Ship is the long term solo project of Theresa Stroetges, a multi-instrumentalist, composer and sound artist based in Berlin. It combines songs with sound collages, electronics, acoustic instruments and video projections. Golden Diskó Ship has followed an interest in breaking up the conventional setting for music performance for a long time. Her goal is to create an immersive experience for an audience that is not on the other side of the stage but part of the same space as the artist(s), like fish in an aquarium.
Theresa's musical adventures also comprise audiovisual electronic improvisation (Epiphany NOW) and psychedelic kraut noise (Soft Grid, Painting). She is especially interested in breaking up conventional performance practices and borders of genres. Besides working on her own musical projects and sound installations she likes collaborating with artists from all kinds of perspectives and has enjoyed developing sounds for video, film, dance, poetry, performance and visual art in the last years. She is always excited to do new things and loves to collaborate.
Admission is free but places are limited. It is possible to book by email: email@example.com
The project of Theresa Stroetges is funded by Musicboard Berlin GmbH.
Zaratan is supported by República Portuguesa – Cultura / Direção-Geral das Artes.
