Desert is based on the piece Timber (2009) by American composer Michael Gordon (1956-), a work premiered in Spain in 2016 by the percussion ensemble FRAMES Percussion.
This new staging by dancer and choreographer Albert Quesada, with an innovative sound design, presents a rereading of the piece and offers a unique immersive experience.
In Michael Gordon’s words, Timber “evokes a journey through the desert”, a journey that spectators will embark upon situated in the centre of sound and dance, which will take them through the austerity and physicality of the sound material. The work is scored for six large pieces of wood, known as simantras and used in Eastern Orthodox liturgy.
An aesthetic experience that will make us reflect and travel through our own personal, inner desert.
