Live @ LOW END | Sarah Hennies with Judith Hamann

The Reinvention of Romance is a 90-minute duet for cello and percussion inspired by the care and empathy that emerges over time when two lives share space. The work consists of a series of repeating patterns that create a peculiar kind of harmony in which two musicians are rarely “playing together” but are nonetheless intimately bonded by a common center. The domestic lives of two people living together will inevitably consist of many endlessly repeating actions: sleeping, waking up, eating, going to work, coming home again, etc. Similarly, our biology is governed by repetition: breathing, blinking, heartbeat, etc. It is only through the passage of time that intimacy can evolve and increase. The Reinvention of Romance is a musical analogue that creates a startling closeness between the two performers and between the performers and audience.
