Beastly Tears

Ofer Smilansky’s show is a sound and light performance made for stage. Using a very simple setup combining light beam projection, customised LED lights and haze, Ofer creates an intense emotive experience. A dense journey with low throbbing kicks and screaming melodies, a synesthesia of light and sound. A completely live performance, this show conveys a dynamic and expressive atmosphere. The music drives the visuals and the synchronisation between the two plays an essential role in the composition. Ofer’s sounds are granular, rhythmic, dramatic and complex, his visuals are sharp black and white minimalist geometric shapes. These particularly contrasted aesthetics build up a tension embodied by Ofer’s charismatic presence on stage.
