No Fabric Between Skin and Hand

Folie à Deux describes a mental disorder in which an actually healthy person adopts the delusions of a close person suffering from psychosis and eventually shares the same delusion. Over time, the two reinforce each other's convictions.

Together with the sound director Daniel Mudrack, the award-winning percussionist and performance artist Vanessa Porter has developed a concept entitled "Folie à Deux", which depicts the emotions of those affected through music, improvisation, live loops and sound installations in order to bring more attention to the still very unknown clinical picture.

What interests Vanessa Porter are sound and physicality, skin and haptics: she is interested in exploring boundaries. This is not always beautiful, but fragile and direct. She wants to prove that a continuous, hour-long programme without intermission or applause requires, above all, full physical engagement: "There's hissing and whispering, there's scratching, rubbing and also hitting," says Porter. Just as if someone were exploring their body for the first time. She uses her own music as well as works by Georges Aperghis, Salvatore Sciarrino, Alexander Sandi Kuhn, David Lang, Emil Kuyumcuyan and Vinko Globokar.
