#6 In Circles - 10 January 2020

On behalf of Toma, Joachim, Nil and Tanar I'd like to invite you to be part of the upcoming edition of our Full Moon gathering:

The sixth edition is all about circles. How we move in circles, how we think in circles, how we orbit around each other. We start by raising a glass to 2020 at 20h23, the exact moment when the moon reaches full phase.

The research of my new work A piece in orbit - drag and circle stone reaches its fourth fase. After experimenting with dragging stones, circling them around each other and a combination of both I'd like to use this gathering to simplify the choreography and still add more layers. Let's hear interesting jazz musicians improvise and see a Turkish Sufi danser work the circle.

I hope to see and meet you next Friday, the 10th of January,
Nick Steur
Toma Gouband

musician: drums, percussions, singing stones, rythmbox

"The music of Toma Gouband transcends the idea of an imaginary territory, for it invites us to approach it as we would a social rite or even a ceremony of love." Together with Joachim Badenhorst, Toma will create the live sounds that accompany A piece in orbit - drag and circle stone.

Sufi whirling (or Sufi turning) is a form of physically active meditation which originated among Sufis, and which is practiced by Sufi Dervishes. It is a meditation practice, through which dervishes aim to reach the source of all perfection, kamal. Nil Görkem will perform Sufi whirling accompanied by Tanar Çatalpınar.

Nick Steur


A piece in orbit – drag and circle stone is Nicks new research into matter that pushes and pulls. More than half of all stars are binary: they orbit each other. Invisible to the naked eye but if we zoom in (or out) far enough, all matter is twisting and turning. In his performance Nick will be musically accompanied by Toma and Joachim.
