This music/dance performance by Eva Baumann und Biliana Voutchkova features exclusively works by extraordinary women composers. Both artists approach the compositions/arrangements for solo violin with the joy of discovery, a fine sense of discernment and transport the audience into uncharted sonic realms. Their musical journey leads from the medieval world of Hildegard von Bingen to characteristic Baroque sonorities and on to contemporary compositions by Joanna Bruzdowicz and Ruth Schonthal. What happens when contemporary dance meets up with music of various historical periods? An atmosphere of concentrated encounter is the governing mode for a very dynamic evening. Critical is the artists' constant and acute awareness of one another and their submersion in the musical/choreographic moment.
