When two artists of different genres meet, this frequently leads to extraordinary results. When the two are such remarkable personalities as dancer Edivaldo Ernesto and composer and pianist Volker Bertelmann – aka Hauschka – fireworks of creativity can safely be predicted. Their collaboration began in 2013 as part of the series UM:LAUT at the Radialsystem in Berlin. As then, the two of them meet determined to build their performance from spontaneous and direct reactions. Without the security of pre-arranged choreographies or compositions, Edivaldo Ernesto and Hauschka improvise a dialogue between dance and music – convinced that allowing mistakes enables them to create the unexpected. Often, after all, it is imperfection that has the potential to unfold enormous attractivity and beauty.
