ACME creates work and is interested in art that focuses on:
– the love for detail – the endless complex relations between movement, music and meaning
– the analysis of the temporal structures and repetitions
– how music can express and communicate ideas
– how organised noise of music evokes images and turns them into thoughts
– speed and its different qualities in stage performances
– the coexistence of different temporalities
– learning skills from musical compositions
– the proprioception and awareness of moving bodies
ACME teaches adults, professionals, amateurs and children. The members of the company teach the skills developed during the creation of stage work.
