»blind date« is the first collaboration between the cie. toula limnaios and the ensemble mosaik.
selected compositions of contemporary chamber music form a starting point for choreographic sketches that incorporate music and musicians in a scenic commentary way. the cie. toula limnaios formulates movement images between the musical works, visual extensions of compositional structures – self-perpetuating commentaries that assertively stand up to the music and create miniatures resembling small pathways through space and time.
