This is a Musical
by Karol Tyminski
Sat 3rd Feb | 20:00 | TDC, Triskel Arts Centre
In Karol Tyminski’s latest work “This is a musical”, the production of a visceral discordant and deeply queer electronic fantasy is built with a laboring body. Tyminski’s body is the instrument for the sample, the electronic music he wields comes into being through a brutal choreography, the musical is a layered archive of the bodies desire, a composition of spliced time where a history of actions that unfold in space continue to sing with deep resonance moving towards further hypnosis. The performer oscillates between tenderness and brutalism creating a beat scape that evolves towards a massive trance like possibility space of madness and pleasure. This borderline body on stage is in rapture, he is the keeper of a threshold, he is methodically edging the audience in the direction of the ecstatic.
