Meyers & Seghal (Germany) - Symphony X
For this Springdance premiere Meyers will perform his most ambitious work so far featuring the 16-member Redux Orchestra in an evolving space designed by Tino Sehgal. Symphony X is a love letter to neo minimal no-wave music, a style that came into being in New York City in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. In this very physical work, compositional procedures influenced by composers such as Glenn Branca and Rhys Chatham meet elements from post punk, minimalism and contemporary music.
Tino Sehgal created an immaterial set design which reconfigures the format of a concert inviting the audience to share the musicians’ experience of physical exertion.
