Deep Etude is a piece of dance and a piece of music where one and the other are both separable and inseparable in the ear-eye of the beholder. The foreground and the background shift, the one carves itself into the other, the dance becomes the background track of the music, the movement excavates the sound and brings it to the surface.
It is a phenomenological description in the shape of a dance. What kind of activity is it to listen to Rhythm? Is the listener always a dancer-listener even if she is an audience member in the dark? Is it possible to bridge the gap between the one who moves in space and the one who moves inside, through listening; the one who is shifting attention, orienting oneself in the deep inner space that is music.

A few years ago the artists Sarah Vanhee, Mette Edvardsen, Alma Söderberg and Juan Dominguez created Manyone, a support structure, a scaffold, that helps to organize their work in a sustainable manner and in accordance with the reality of their individual practice. Manyone does not function as a label. Their coming together is based on shared affinities and a desire to connect and support each other as artists.
On the first week-end of Almost Summer festival, the Manyone artists will be showing a selection of their works, proceeded by an artist talk and followed by a cocktail party. They will come together to share their work, both with each other and with the audience, is something that the artists have set out to do on a yearly basis. This year they are coming to BUDA, a house that supports the Manyone artists on a long-term basis.
