Luftschnitt#2_Sketch by Elpida Orfanidou

Sketch, a draft study on performing & composing with & by Elpida Orfanidou.

“My starting question was: how can I practice composing by practicingperforming? I was interested in finding ways of “putting things together" through practicing material that I personally find attractive. I wanted to be intuitive and naïve enough. In the studio I started with a range of interests coming from very different fields.
I felt totally lost. I rediscovered ‘Film’ (1965), the only film by Samuel Beckett and I started to work with it. In order to enjoy my working process I returned to my little key fascinations - obsessions. I would like to talk with you about them after the performance. Finally, I came up with a combination of choices, which could be one option. I thought to call it ‘Sketch’ and to share it with you in a very informal evening. I am interested in your view.” Elpida Orfanidou.
