north east scotland's festival of new music

Ian Spink and Bill ThompsonThe ANa Project

The ANa Project is a collaboration between sound artist Bill Thompson and choreographer Ian Spink, which explores the practical considerations involving the dissolution of the 'artefact' of composition within the context of a dance theatre narrative, in a series of 'fragments' of sound, music and movement.

Ian and Bill are both interested in creating work that involves the active perceptual engagement of an audience. Each viewer and listener playing an active creative part of the experience of the work.

The themes explored in The ANa Project are based on two real-life events. Two travellers: one - on foot, the other - by air, travel the same route, from opposite starting points. Their individual journeys span a continent, yet each arrives at a vastly different understanding of themselves and of the landscape around them.

The ANa Project on various levels and for all of us, will investigate these questions: Who am I? What place is this? Where are we headed?
