Trio Art Perform(D)ance

As accompaniment of the solo exhibition Between by Eberhard Bitter, the award-winning artist, a trio of exceptional artists will perform an improvised multidisciplinary show. Join us for this extraordinary act on March 2nd.

The art performance that accompanies the exhibition Between by Eberhard Bitter makes it clear: everything is related, and nothing stands on its own. Music finds expression in physical movement. Bodies dance feelings and are captured in artistic representation. The overwhelming intensity of the drawing in turn breaks through in the musical performance. The communication between music, dance, and art is constantly present, always different, but always there.

For the trio performance, we have been able to win Alessandro Giaquinto – the semi-soloist of the Stuttgart Ballet – who will dance to the improvised contemporary experimental music of saxophonist Andreas Krennerich. The movement sequences will be drawn live by Eberhard Bitter.

The performance will take place on 2 March 2023 at the EXOgallery in Silberburgstraße 167.

Start at 19:30,  free admission from 19:00 

Contributing Artists

Eberhard Bitter

Eberhard Bitter was born in 1960 in the Ruhr region of North Rhine-Westphalia and initially trained as a bookbinder.

From 1981 to 1987, Bitter studied painting at Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts with Prof. Pitt Moog and Prof. Hartmut Böhm. It is perhaps exemplary that Bitter initially began his studies in the field of graphic design, but then quite consciously decided on the liberal arts during his studies. This uncompromising determination characterises his works today. Since 2008, Bitter has had two teaching assignments for ‘Freehand Drawing’ and ‘Fundamentals of Design’ at the Bochum University of Applied Sciences, FB-Architecture – a task that fulfils him greatly. Bitter has been a member of the West German Artists’ Association since 2010.

Alessandro Giaquinto

Alessandro was born in Scandiano (Italy) and grew up in Reggio Emilia.
At the age of 10, he began his dance training at the Progetto Danza school in his hometown.

From 2011 to 2016 he attended the John Cranko School, where he successfully completed his training. Since then he has danced with the Stuttgart Ballet, where he has been a semi-soloist since the beginning of the 2021/22 season.

Alessandro is an active choreographer and has already created several choreographies.

Andreas Krennerich

Andreas completed classical and jazz saxophone training. For over 20 years he has been involved with improvised music, which has developed from jazz.

Back then he played in a quartet, including a tour of Brazil. They played jazz pieces but also Bach, Berio, Bartok.

Since 2000, Nikola Lutz and Andreas Krennerich have been organising a Stuttgart
festival, a meeting of many contemporary forms of saxophone music.
