ONETIME is a convergence of sound, music and gesture; composed, played and embodied with instruments, bodies and objects, coalescing in one expression of singular and universal. Created through attending to each emerging moment, ONETIME is a performed blueprint; interacting with presence, sound and movement in real time. The trio unfolds a vivid, layered audio-visual imagery, in a shared vision of contrast and of common memories of the body and imagination.
The violinist Biliana Voutchkova is a solo and chamber musician. With great devotion she interprets, composes and improvises especially in the field of contemporary music and in experimental sound and movement projects; an artist with a very strong individual voice. She lives in Berlin, works as a soloist and together with Ensemble United Berlin, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, Splitter Orchestra, Zeitkratzer, Voutchkova/Thieke duo and has been heard at festivals and concert series worldwide.

The Instrument create performance pieces that arise from the collaboration between choreographer Maya M. Carroll and composer Roy Carroll. Their work demonstrates an intrepid sensuality and tactile, imaginative exploration of the body. The Instrument work closely with a wide range of artists. Their approach stems from a clear aesthetic of movement and sound that permeates all facets of the work, from light painting to graphics and visual art.
