Light as a compositional building block

The Liquid Room Series by the musical ensemble Ictus has gradually acquired cult status. Every Liquid Room has a theme and this time round, it is ‘light’. A new generation of composers makes use of light as if it were a compositional building block, just like sound or movement. Increasingly accessible – and cheaper – technology has contributed to this ‘materialistic liberation’. Alongside the composers Alexander Schubert, Kaj Duncan Daviden and Juliana Hodkinson, the choreographers Ula Sickle and her sound wizard Yann Legauy are a strong presence with two of their impressive Light Solos

Liquid Room was specifically devised for Kaaitheater’s large hall. This is dismantled and used as a single open space. Various different podia are spread around, with the audience positioned in between them. Music is given the broadest possible interpretation through a great openness to other disciplines, such as visual art, dance and performance. In the meantime, Ictus has also introduced this successful formula at music festivals in Darmstadt and Berlin.
