Nocturne / ANNI KAILA

 


 

This music that didn't come from a radio was music that was in my mind. I imagined that it came from my pillow. My mother remembered me asking her to turn the pillow off at night when I couldn't sleep; to turn off the music that I imagined inside my head.

- Kaija Saariaho (composer)

 

NOCTURNE is a study on the inevitability of music and movement - dance starting at the back of your head, sound made manifest inside your ear. Anni Kaila collaborates with violinist Yoonhee Lee to create a dreamscape of night songs and bedroom dances. 

 

Performance dates:

 

16 January - Dance Flavours Performance Night, Arnhem, Theater aan de Rijn
