Genevieve Murphy: I Don’t Want To Be An Individual All On My Own

Coming years composer Genevieve Murphy will be creating performances as an associated artist to Nicole Beutler Projects, as part of the Nieuwe Makersregeling of the Fonds Podiumkunsten. There is a kinship between Murphy and Beutler, in the way that they both combine composition and performance in their works. Nicole Beutler's choreographies are compositions of image, sound and movement alike. Music and sound are among the most important signifiers in her pieces. Whereas Beutler's work always takes the body and its movement as a starting point, Murphy's work mostly derives from her own musical compositions. Nicole Beutler will be coaching Genevieve Murphy in developing her work as a performer and a performance maker. The solo I Don’t Want To Be An Individual All On My Own is the third project at NBprojects.
