MONO E.P: Track 1 (Andrew Kerton)
In times of digital and visual bombardment on multiple levels, we increasingly recoil from the phenomenon of monotony. For the performance artist Andrew Kerton and his DJane Hannah Holland, the monotonous bass hides within itself a trampoline for resonances, variances and vocal acrobatics that require no amplification. Mono becomes the new stereos and continues to reverberate far beyond itself.
Double performance with Restraint within the scope of Introducing - the newcomer's platform of the Berlin Performing Arts Festival.

Outside of clubland, she works on theater and film music, as well as playing bass for the band Black Gold Buffalo.
The Sophiensæle is one of the most important locations for the production of the independent arts in the German-speaking world. Artists from Berlin, as well as the national and international theater community are invited to produce and present their works here. They are selected on the basis of their artistic concepts, content and working methods. The theater is home to cultural discourse and a vast mix of artistic genres – from theater, dance and music to performance and visual art; which complement each other and enjoy a productive dialogue. Alongside many young artists searching for new theatrical languages and forms of expression, a number of established artists and companies have longstanding partnerships with the Sophiensæle.
