We are melting electronics, poetry, vocals, body/movement and spacial structures into a (performative) AMORPHOUS ALLOY. Amorphous alloys are metallic materials with a glass-like structure and astonishing properties, applicable for example as biomaterial for implantation into bones, which dissolves gradually in organisms and is replaced with bone tissue… a possible meeting point between body and machine.

in the scope of 5. NOW! FESTIVAL 2017 Action TheaterTM & Improvisation
WAH is the name for collaborative work of Anja Weber, Jagna Anderson and Dodi Helschinger. Since 2016 we keep criss-crossing together various artistic fields and creating new polyphonies out of dance, acoustic and electronic music, vocal performance, poetry, video and installation. We explore intersections between body and its different multisensorial contextualizations. We are combining improvisation and instant composition with scores.
