Residency Showing | Crispin Bade & Bar Gonen

CircusDanceFestival invites you to the work-in-progress showing of Acoustic Resonance by Crispin Bade and Bar Gonen.

Acoustic Resonance is an interdisciplinary duet of contemporary dance and rope artistry that explores the complexities of human communication. In this piece, two performers from different disciplines – circus and dance – with different mother tongues and cultural contexts – Israel and Germany – meet and seek mutual understanding through movement. Inspired by the phenomenon of acoustic resonance, in which acoustic waves mix with each other and sound is amplified as a result, in this piece we work with the vibrations of the vertical rope and two bodies that try to find each other and yet keep disturbing each other.
