If for Paul Klee, the line is a point that has gone for a walk, the walk of a brush in calligraphy could be a sensory journey beyond the boundaries of the image itself.
Can we translate a sound into calligraphy and vice versa?
Japanese calligraphy has influenced and continues to influence Western art, from music to painting and many other arts forms.
The technicity and immediacy of the gesture of writing makes it an art that comes close to the creative and performative gesture of musicians.
The performance will present a program that combines the Japanese calligraphy with a music program dedicated to the composers who have been most inspired by this art, with a special focus on György Kurtág.
