VARIA17 SHORT CUT 30/9 19.00 – ca20.30 (incl. paus)



Duet by Katarina Eriksson dancer (S/USA) & Yasuhito Mori musician (S/JP)

Yasuhito Mori and Katarina Eriksson found each other improvisationally during the Danc'n Bass Festival in Göteborg 2011.

With curiosity they look forward to letting impulses bounce freely in an "audio-visual contact improvisation".

The theme for VARIA17 SHORT CUT; "movement/dance meets music/sound" is perfect for Yasuhito who loves dance,

and for Katarina who has been called "a dancer with a musicians mind".
