Katerina Andreou BSTRD
Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels Festival
BSTRD is an energetic and minimalist solo performance featuring Katerina Andreou and a single vinyl turntable, based on the notions of impurity and transformation. What if the idea of purity is an illusion and everything was made of a much more complex material?
She is accompanied by a pounding soundtrack and inspired by house culture. Pressed onto vinyl and activated at the beginning of the piece, this score is a backdrop to an exploration of both political and poetic issues focusing on a dramatic bastardised figure. Katerina uses this hybrid music to explore the very origin of gesture.
