DISQUIET - sensational aesthetics of a technokin (dans)
A pulsating exploration of the connective and transformative power of hardcore techno.
After approaching hardcore techno dancing from her own background through the style of gabber in the pieces Camouflaging Kelly (2014) and SOFTCORE (2018), Lisa Vereertbrugghen continued her research with sound designer Michael Langeder to include other hardcore dance styles, like jungle, drum-‘n-bass and other contemporary hardcore varieties in an attempt to find and activate their common ground. One element that connects these underground substyles besides their high speed is the disruption of the flow with pauses, breakbeats and complex intermittent rhythms. Focussing on these sonic ruptures, pauses and bursts, DISQUIET explores how they can inform and stimulate the body. Dancing hardcore is presented as a break from structure, looking for a disquieted elsewhere.
