An enormously tall, broad-shouldered man in a nondescript suit walks out of the wings.The 45-minute long performance, which premiered in Munich in January, features not professional dancers but the four members of the Asasello String Quartet, made up of Rostislav Kozhevnikov and Barbara Kuster on violin, Justyna Sliwa on viola and Wolfgang Zamastil on cello. The quartet's talents as classical musicians shone through in this radically experimental performance. The opening segment of the performance featured a classically inspired composition with repeated bursts of staccato chords, during which Kozhevnikov bounced up and down energetically on his stool, occasionally standing to face off with Sliwa, like two goats about to lock horns, or possibly violin pegs.As the performance progressed, the musicians' physical movements became wilder and the aural portion of the performance correspondingly more dissonant and percussive. As the performance progressed, the movement of the dancers gradually began to take precedence, appearing to drive the composition, rather than being generated by it.
