Etude is a work, developed from observation, transcription and translation processes that the artist has devised to explore this question in depth. It involves five performers, musicians and dancers (Bachzetsis included), in developing a vocabulary of movements and attitudes performed together and in isolation. Repetition of minute details of behavior is doubly deployed – as a learning tool (in rehearsal) and dramatic device.

Phase to Phase / Minimal Art Interaction
Premiere: 10th February, Gymnasium Oberwil, BL, Switzerland
"Maximum effect with minimal means". A live performance exploring the basic forms and conseptual thinking. I was counselling the students of Gymnasium Oberwil to create interactive live action based visuals for this concert containing minimal music with pieces from Pat Metheny, Paul Smadback, Steve Reich, Morton Feldman and Maurice Ravel. The students also had some workshops on VJ'ing, so the end result was a combination of video projections and light.
