An organism as a closed, scrolled leave – in the beginning there is sound and there are traces of light- slowly exploring the ground. Carefully awakening, abruptly the arms unfold as wings in the air. Groping, searching, exploration of the surrounding space.
Gerard Mosterd creates interdisciplinary, physical performances. He examines the contrasts and similarities between the European and Asian body and its movements and places the results of these processes within frameworks related to current, literary and autobiographical, Indo-European topics. His productions are being performed annually throughout the Netherlands as well as in Asia. The Erasmus Huis supported several tours of his work including a collaboration project with Gumarang Sakti in 2007 which included the execution of around 60 workshops and performances worldwide. Unfolding was a commissioned work for Artgarden 2003 and the Dutch Electronic Music Festival, Hidden Planet, Amsterdam in 2004 and has since its conception been performed successfully worldwide by several casts.
