Dance film ‘As you lean against the noise’ by Chronos  

The world is changing at an ever-accelerating pace. The natural world shows us, time and time again, how resilience and adaptation drive survival. We ask ourselves an urgent question: can the human species still adapt to the speed at which the planet is transforming? Inspired by the wonders of nature, we adapt and evolve in symbiotic relationships. Like flocking birds, growing root-networks and decomposing organisms, we lead you through circular connections and close encounters, showing a hopeful vision of transformation for humankind.    
"As you lean against the noise" was created to be a performance that could be adapted to the space where it is presented. In February 2021, due to restrictions the performance was first presented as a film version and then later as a performance.     
The work is a co-production with ICK Amsterdam, Over het IJ Festival and LeineRoebana and is made possible by Amsterdam Fonds voor de Kunst, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Gravin van Bylandt Stichting and Stichting NORMA.    
Concept and performance: Charlotte Mathiessen, Coralie Merle, Vera Goetzee and Sarah Soethoudt   
Composition and singing: Vita Pagie and Jochem Braat   
Light design: Eelke Slooten   
Dramaturgy: Jesse Vanhoeck   
Video: Jesse Immanuel Bom   


Live performance
‘Panflutes and Paperworks’ by Ingrid Berger Myhre 
What does “dancing to music” really mean? And how do you create music for dance? In this duet, Ingrid Berger Myhre and Lasse Passage playfully examine the relationships between dance and music, using scores as tools to uphold structure over skill, method over indulgence. The title of their duet alludes to the contrast between the wet and the dry: Panflutes, on the one hand, are playful and passionate, Paperwork, on the other, refers to notation and sounds bureaucratic. The tensions between these states play well with tired conventions in the famous choreographer-composer constellation. With both tools at hand, Ingrid and Lasse invent games that re-negotiate their rule. 

"The Norwegian Berger Myhre, educated in Amsterdam and Brussels, seems to own this type of dry humor as an inherent part of her dance works.You have to like it (...). It is at the same time laughable and sweet, as they try to share everything (even each other’s talent) in this small hour full of playfully performed nonsense-games."  Annette Embrechts, De Volkskrant: ★★★★☆  

"This is a show that is situated on the boarder between performance and concert, playing with the disciplines. The playful, nerdy precision points back to the pioneers of contemporary music like John Cage and Ernst Toch and we as audience are offered a nice balance of feel good, poetic images and musicality on a high level." - Frøydis Århus, Scenekunst.no 

"This is a party to watch." - Ingrid de Vries, Theater 050
