Yama – three bodies

– Live performance with butohartist / dancer Frauke and electro / glitch musician Andreas Tilliander.


Hidden yet the sky always find the unrevealed. New beams swirling through the deep forest, no one will ever find this hidden lost island. Deep in the mountain the wind carries the bird of prey to the glowing horizon. Transcending any path. Silent stranger, neighbor, descent dew.

Yama is the first performance in a new trilogy, titled three bodies. Three bodies refers to the natural cyclic process and the three bodies or phases nature undergoes in a flow of duration. The third body mediates and connects the other two bodies. Just as day and night need dusk or dawn.

The performance Yama, explores our relationship to the untamed nature. The mountains indicate climax, revelation and transition - they are our highest point while navel of the earth, where everything has its beginning. The piece is an unique live act with butoh artist/dancer Frauke and electro/glitch musician Andreas Tilliander.

Frauke and Tilliander’s most recent collaboration was Wolf Moon, the final part in a trilogy that premiered in Sweden 2016 during the Gothenburg Dance & Theatre Festival. The second part and their first collaboration, Nagaame Moon, performed in Skärhamn, Gothenburg, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin and Naruto. Nagaame Moon had its first performance during the Nordic Music Days’ opening concert at Kongernes Lapidarium in Copenhagen. This new piece, Yama - three bodies, had its international premiere at Guggenheim House in Kobe, Japan, and will tour internationally during 2017.

Frauke is a choreographer focusing on butoh and performance. She is based in Sweden but also does work internationally. She has created her own genre of butoh where her pieces are site specific and unique. Frauke often works with other artists from different artistic disciplines and her performances are inspired by contemporary art and choreography.

Andreas Tilliander has been active within the electronic music scene ever since the beginning of the nineties. Nowadays, electronica is tightly associated with laptops, but rather than following the latest software development Tilliander prides himself on working with equipment that is more or less forty years old. Even if it’s principally about the creation of sound, the tactile dimension of it is tremendously important.
