Fawaz Baker – oud, fretless bass
Yanaël Plumet - dance

Ta’thîr is the Arabic word used to describe the influence music has on a human spirit. This duet between Yanaël Plumet and Fawaz Baker opens a space for two languages to meet, each using their own approach to the improvised mode.

Here, the strict lineage of musical codes meets the open engagement of the dance, weaving a singular material which emerges instantly from a porosity between the two forms.

Ta’thîr performed in Cappadocia during TRANSIT 2010
