Roberta Pisu and Arcis Saxophon Quartett began their collaboration with the full-length production HEIMAT, which premiered on September 21, 2020 in the Philharmonie am Gasteig Munich.
Other productions of the Collective are "KHOROVOD" (2020) "2X GETANZT " (2021), the short movie "DAVE", a solo work "KNITTING GIRL" and " K.I.nd of Human" in 2022.
The aim of the collective is to transfer the idea of chamber music to contemporary dance: to create an intimate form of expression in a small ensemble in order to implement subtle and refined artistic ideas.
A very important aspect is the joint creative process. The relationship between classical music and contemporary dance and the possibilities and interfaces that result from them should be explored more and more and thus a common statement brought to the stage. For this reason, the musicians are involved in the entire process and not just at the end of the creation process, as is usually the case. With their unique saxophone sound, the musicians, like the dancers, are part of the performance on stage.
While Roberta Pisu and the Arcis Saxophon Quartett form the core of the collective, it is more than open to collaboration with any type of music, choreographic approach and any type of art form like singing, panting, video, photography etc etc, willing to share an intimate and stimulating creative process.
