What happens when everything pauses? People and things, together? Who or what then takes the leading role?
In 'Generalpause', an expansive thicket of metal populates the stage, together with an ensemble of traditional instruments and their boldly modified relatives. In between people move, in the constant contact between bodies and things sounds emerge, rhythms develop, everything starts to groove. Sounds and light spread and transmit, as particles and waves, sparkling, glowing, shining, combining with the hissing, crashing, banging, screeching, buzzing and chirping of things.
'General Pause' is a moving search for new images of making music together, of physically working on and with music, of the dynamic alliance of people and things acting and pausing. A concert performance choreographed for all the senses.
