‘Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird’ is a famous poem written a good 100 years ago by the American lyric poet Wallace Stevens. It has inspired the choreographer and stage director Joachim Schloemer to create ‘Blackbird’, a quest for fugitive points of contact between dance, music and language. This co-production with the dancer Marcela Ruiz Quintero and the E-MEX Ensemble toys with unknown things that kindle both fascination and dread. It asks what we consider familiar and what we perceive as threatening. The almost imperceptible vacillation from security to unease is reflected in the changing sonic images, tailored for a church interior by composer Diana Soh.
