The choreography of Danza Permanente comes from a musical composition created in Vienna two centuries ago by a deaf man. Initially written for four stringed instruments, the score is transposed into movement for four dancers. They embody the musical structure, behaviors, and dynamics of the string quartet over time, and through space. The dancers behave as sound, in their becoming of visible music in silence. The transposition is by DD Dorvillier and Zeena Parkins, with dancers Fabian Barba, Nuno Bizarro, Walter Dundervill, Naiara Mendioroz, and rehearsal assistant Heather Kravas. The acoustic environment by Zeena Parkins and lighting design by Thomas Dunn follow the score and frame this visible music.
