«with these hands i…

Swiss-based duo, Phoebe Bognár and Manca Dornik present «with these hands i…»– a concert program which investigates identity, choice and meaning. Following their acclaimed concert at the Göteborg Arts Sounds Festival in October 2023, the duo is back with a tour featuring an extended collage of pieces for instrumentalists, performers and new works by the duo themselves. The performance is a collision of digital and physical, with multimedia works involving electronics, video and objects in tandem with instruments and performance. «with these hands i…» feasts upon the multiplicity of imagination and identity and reflects upon the (over)saturation of information, ultimately refracting into a kaleidoscope of creative possibilities.
