11 September - Franco Prinsloo, Sonya Rademeyer, Willem van den Heever and André van Rensburg: “Traces”

In this 20-minute online concert artists Sonya Rademeyer, Willem van den Heever and André van Rensburg collaborate with composer Franco Prinsloo in creating three striking videos to accompany three musical “Prayers”. Sonya Rademeyer re-translates the music of Prayer to the Young Moon by way of automated gesture to create a powerful drawing performance addressing inter-generational trauma caused by colonisation. Willem van den Heever explores themes in Jonah’s Prayer, capturing an expressive dance by Marguerite Wolfaardt where escape from a place of dark confinement opens up into a place where mind and soul can roam freely. And, in the new work Lacrimosa (world premiere), Prinsloo and André van Rensburg’s inter-continental artistic responses explore the subtleties of microtonal overtones through the theme of loss. In the video component to this work, Van Rensburg uses the movement of water to echo the theme of mourning, resulting in an abstracted meditation of movements and lines. In Honouring Traces three musical compositions result in three distinctive visual works that subliminally speak towards honouring the inner Self. Viewed from a collective perspective, the triage-form a weighted counterpart to Prinsloo’s compositions. Moving from either an historical, confined or mourning Self, the fabric of the visual language is woven together in the subtleties of a collective search for traces. Echoes of invisible prayers edge the works forward to eventually come to a place of rest where forgotten or lost traces can again be honoured.
