With Schrumpf! Biliana and the Instrument the artists invite the audience to explore the space together with them, based on their new piece ONETIME. In the middle of the exploration, the artists start with a performance in the middle of which the audience finds itself and can participate. Afterwards the question arises: What is this and how does it work?
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. Biliana is founder / curator of the DARA String Festival. She received the composition grant of the Berlin Senate 2017 and support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding New York and INM Berlin.
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.
Daniella Strasfogel is a violinist, violin teacher and performer in Berlin. She is a founding member of the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop in Berlin.
