Calder Moves

A New, Intimate Immersive Experience
Featuring Music, Dance and Art

“Calder Moves”, a co-production by Tom Pearson (Global Performance Studio/Third Rail Projects, New York) and the Flex Ensemble, is an invitation to the audience to participate in an interactive, experimental performance and move through the Calder Hall of the Sprengel Museum in an immersive experience.

The focus is on the art of Alexander Calder (1898-1976). Taking up his aesthetics of wonder, whimsy and chance with the music of Witold Lutosławski, John Cage, Caroline Shaw and Brigitta Muntendorf (WP), the musicians and performers create sonic and visual “mobiles” together with the audience. These celebrate Calder’s work and invite us not only to pause and take note, but to participate, play and be immersed–visually, sonically, and somatically—in the purposeful wonder of it all.

Flex Ensemble (Piano Quartet + Performance), Lisa Werhahn (Violin + Performance), Marissa Nielsen-Pincus, Simon Kluth (Performance) und Tom Pearson (Director)

Witold Lutosławski – String Quartet
John Cage – Suite for toy piano & 5”
