Alex Villard (MX), Jannis Labner (AT/GR)—

Shattered is an exploration of the beauty that can emerge from brokenness and vulnerability. A live performance exploring experimental electronic glitch beats, synced visuals and contemporary dance. As the music swells, the dancer is revealed on the projected stage, his movements are jerky and disjointed at first, like the broken pieces of a shattered vase. Gradually, his dance becomes more fluid, as he weaves in and out of the fragmented soundscape. Till the moment that will bring him into a grounded position referring to the Japanese art of Kintsugi.
