DUO Premier on July 12th, 2019
Bavarian State Opera and Bavarian State Ballet
In collaboration with choreographer Nanine Linning, Irina Shaposhnikova created costumes based on the structure of sound waves and inspired by the music of Hans Abrahamsen's piece "Schnee'. Transforming echoes she developed unique 3D cut and layered dresses, jackets and pants. Duo is a multidisciplinary production that combines contemporary dance, performance, installation and ballet.
"Linning picks up on the formal requirements and yet sets her own images against it, visualizes sound waves in wave movements, an effect that the black and white skirts from the 3D printer by Irina Shaposhnikova emphasize. The dancers evoke a very pure, existential experience of a community, which also involves the public."
