"Un Mundo Nuevo" - Residency and Concert Organisation In Medellin, Columbia (SEP, 2021)

Apis Sapiens

Tanz-/Soundperformance

(Punzmann, Riederer, 2020)

http://www.vorbrenner.org/apis-sapiens/

Bees and humans - both species have a long history in common. However, the bees have been on our planet for much longer. It was only with the appearance of Homo Sapiens, the “reasonable man”, that bees began to die. Our collective consciousness is only slowly realizing that the bee has never been dependent on us, but we are always dependent on it.
The field project Apis Sapiens deals musically and choreographically with the well-organized superorganism of a bee state. Based on the wide-ranging communication vocabulary of the individual in the state, Apis Sapiens converts the inscribed movement patterns and their soundspace into expression of individual creativity.
At the end of the process, a dance work emerges which aims to understand the question of the connection between the behavior of the individual in the large colony. Bees have no ears, they feel the sound all over their bodies. Sound is vibration. Vibration is communication. Special acoustic properties of the beehive make this communication possible. The construction of the honeycomb, the materials used, the physiognomy of the bee and the seasons are variables of an engaging sound composition.
