ABOUT

Dimitri de Perrot is an internationally active and awarded Swiss artist, musician and director and, since 2014, a regular mentor and guest lecturer at the ZHdK (Zurich University of the Arts). At the core of his work and productions is the narrative through and with sound at interfaces of theatre, music and fine arts. De Perrots worked for many years with actors, dancers and artists. He staged interdisciplinary theatre and music projects, designed stage sets and composed for film and theatre.

In his more recent work he creates scenic sculpture for theatre spaces, using sound, space, light and visuals as equivalent, narrative structures. He has also realized diverse installations and sound sculptures for festivals, museums and places of the public.


The works and collaborations of de Perrot tour worldwide and have been programmed in prestigious venues and festivals: Le Centquatre – Paris, BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music - New York), Hong Kong Arts Centre, Museum Tinguely Basel, Festival d‘Avignon, Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne, Romaeuropa Festival – Rome, Barbican London, Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre, Théâtre de la Ville - Paris, Schauspielhaus Zürich, Holland Festival, Zürcher Theater Spektakel and Biennale Musiques en Scène - Lyon, amongst others.

De Perrot holds an Executive Master in Arts Administration (EMAA) from the University of Zurich. He was co-founder of the artist collective MZdP (1998-2005) and the Swiss directing duo Zimmermann & de Perrot (2006-2017). From these collaborations emerged two internationally active production offices. With their productions he performed on stage for almost two decades. In 2017 he founded his own production company, the Studio DdP.

Dimitri de Perrot lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland.

NEXT – UPCOMING

A no man's land lies between two or more defined and assigned zones. Often fallow land develops there, nature thrives without human intervention, a habitat that rarely exists today.

Dimitri de Perrot examines the qualities of no man's land as a space of freedom for his upcoming creation Niemandsland (premier in Janury 2021). There are no spectator's seats, no stage, no action and no performers. All that is there is sound, music, and the audience - us. In this Residenzshowing at Südpol Lucern, Dimitri de Perrot opens a rehearsal moment and invites the audience to take their first steps in Niemandsland.

Dimitri de Perrot - NIEMANDSLAND (New Creation!)
A journey to what lies between us


Niemandsland is a large room of immersion with partially placed reflective mirrors. It is permeated by a driving composition of sounds and noises from daily life. The audience can move freely in it, sit or lie down. This "Disco of Everyday Life" becomes a place for participation, surprise, reflection and inspiration.
Niemandsland is the new creation of Dimitri de Perrot, a project at interfaces of theatre, concert and installation.


A no-man’s land [Niemandsland] lies between two or more defined and allocated zones. Wastelands often develop there; the flora and fauna thrive without man’s intervention. It is a habitat as it only rarely exists anymore. In this sense, the no-man’s land is a space of freedom. A space in between for meetings and understanding. The usual order has been suspended; rules can be redefined.

In his youth, Dimitri de Perrot got people dancing in clubs and bars as a DJ almost every weekend. His social and artistic ambition was to get people to dance to music that they didn’t know, or to dance to music that they never ever would have considered dancing to. He experienced unique moments of complete satisfaction and happiness with a group of people that were suddenly linked by a feeling of having discovered something intimate, an interior, something hidden, that they could share with others.

Like a DJ, he invites the audience in NIEMANDSLAND to a “party of daily life” in the theater. However, there are no seats for visitors, no stage, no plot and no performers. The only thing there is the sound, the music and the audience – so, in a word, us. In NIEMANDSLAND, we wander through a surreal acoustic landscape where completely normal and banal elements of daily life manifest themselves in a new way.

«If acceleration is the problem, then maybe resonance is the solution.” This is the often-cited diagnosis by the German sociologist Hartmut Rosa for the current period. De Perrot’s creation invites the audience on an acoustic journey to the edges of what we call our lives – to what we may perceive but would never make note of in our dairies: the rattling of trains, the sound of a neighbor coming home in the stairwell, cut-off answers on the telephone, whispering, rain, wind, silence. It is this “utter emptiness”, which has been surrounding us for thousands of years, that we listen to less and less. We haven’t really been alone since the global triumph of smartphones at the latest; we don’t do “nothing” anymore. But it is precisely there that humanity is often shown; this is where empathy is formed. In NIEMANDSLAND, this “utter emptiness” becomes music, rhythm, melody – and returns to its original state again. A space of resonance is created that you want to move through: listening, venturing forward, losing yourself, participating – and yes, maybe even dancing.

The piece is a 60-minute composition that repeats as a loop. In NIEMANDSLAND, de Perrot moves in an “in between” of theater, a concert, an installation and a party.

PAST DATES

Dimitri de Perrot & dj sniff: CYCLES
Sound performance


Dimitri de Perrot and dj sniff (Japan) come together to perform “Cycles” - an improvisational sound performance that moves between found-sounds and sonic textures manipulated on the turntable and various electronic devices. The playback of a record is not only the re-tracing of music or a past event, but is also an engraving of a new moment on the listener’s memory of the space and time of the playback. Through turntablist techniques and manipulations of sounds through looping and mixing, de Perrot and sniff address this moment where the past repeats itself in cycles but slightly different at every iteration. As sound structures emerge and the dialog between the two musicians develop notions of representation associate with the sound media collapse and what is left is only a presence that could be described as the “now.”

dj sniff
dj sniff (Takuro Mizuta Lippit) is a musician and curator in the field of experimental electronic arts and improvised music. His musical work builds upon a distinct practice that combines DJing, instrument design, and free improvisation. His collaborations include Evan Parker, Otomo Yoshihide, Martin Tetreault, Paul Hubweber, Tarek Atoui, and Senyawa. After completing his master’s at NYU ITP in 2004, he was Artistic Director of STEIM in Amsterdam between 2007-2012 and Visiting Assistant Professor at the School of Creative Media City University Hong Kong between 2012-2017. He is now based in Tokyo and is Co-Director of AMF (Asian Meeting Festival) - a festival that aims to bring together experimental music practices in Asia.

Dimitri de Perrot – MYOUSIC
with Julian Sartorius (drums)


MYOUSIC is a scenic sculpture for theatre spaces without actors on stage. It gives the leading role to sound. In shifting the familiar hierarchy of image and sound in the theatre, this piece extends sensory experiences and stimulates a dialogue about established ways of thinking and reaction.

Dimitri de Perrot – KLIRR
new creation for the marshes and hills of Gais in Appenzell


The Audio Festival Klang-Moor-Schopfe in Gais, Appenzell takes place in a moor area where artistic positions are shown in solitary barns: installations, concerts and performances. For this special setting, Dimitri de Perrot created KLIRR, a new composition about counting.

If you count, you always also break up a „whole“ and begin to divide and put it in order. The beginning of classifications and appropriations and commitments. Also possibly the beginning of a „standardization“ and prescribed thought process, and the end of the speechless and innumerable connections to „what’s out there“ – what we hear, see, feel and sense.

Dimitri de Perrot – UNLESS


The scenic installation uses high-traffic places in the public space to extract an interventionist theatricality from a deadlocked randomness of their daily rituals and processes, thus opening up a widening view of the interstices of the supposed familiar.

Dimitri de Perrot – TRIFF
A visual and tonal intervention for Le Centquatre Paris


top

Photo credits © Studio DdP


The Hall d'Aubervilliers is a central entrance hall of the 104 in Paris and functions as a nerve centre and meeting place for the venue. Thorough a visual and tonal intervention, Dimitri de Perrot aimed to break through the allegedly well-rehearsed processes of this location. The result was a playful, curious and new look at the everyday happenings including the space, its embedded architectural and the human elements within.

Through a stage installation in the heart of the 104, the Swiss artist and composer Dimitri de Perrot developed a site-specific sound work inspired by his impressions of the city. In a provisionally constructed studio, sound, rhythm and story material from the 104 and its surroundings were collected and registered. The on-site studio functioned as his "guest room", where he met random acquaintances and invited guests from the quarter and the city. The process created - from guest to guest, a musical documentary of a living space: From the place, for the place.

"I am interested in the postmodern accelerated city life, which seeks a path through the hectic everyday life of mundane chores in a flow of intermediate moments, transitions and supposedly small events - from one task to the next, from one question to another - rhythm, stress and exhaustion. Personal stories as well as sonic musical performances of the guests in the temporary studio in the Hall d'Aubervilliers formed the basis of my composition for the 104th. It is in this sense a cultural property consisting of memories and hopes through sound and song." Dimitri de Perrot, 2018

Dimitri de Perrot – MYOUSIC
with Julian Sartorius (drums)


MYOUSIC is a scenic sculpture for theatre spaces without actors on stage. It gives the leading role to sound. In shifting the familiar hierarchy of image and sound in the theatre, this piece extends sensory experiences and stimulates a dialogue about established ways of thinking and reaction.

Dimitri de Perrot - UNLESS
NEW CREATION
Premier the 13th of July at Hong Kong Arts Centre / Hysan Place


"UNLESS" is a sounding sculpture placed in the large entrance hall of Hysan Place – a historic shopping mall in the centre of Causeway Bay – Hong Kong. “Unless” immerses a walk-through stage with a musical composition and cinematographic sound design that gives the Atrium a staged plane. The visitor is invited to participate in the emerging of the moment: walk through or sit down, watch and listen to its surrounding. An inspiring moment of slowing down the everydays fast pace.

The entrance hall of Hysan Place is a central meeting place in the neighbourhood and as such a place of passage and chance encounters. While history and stories tell of great deeds and events, life consists above all of interim moments, transitions and small situations on the way; from one place to another, from one question to the next. "UNLESS" turns it’s attention to the seeming triviality of the ordinary that we may lose in the hustle of everyday life and that we tend to ignore or forget - the dynamic moment, the subtle and the diverse habitat of the self in the now and here.

"UNLESS" premiered the 13th of July 2018 at the Hysan Place in Hong Kong within Cultural Masseur, the Multi-Arts Festival of the Hong Kong Arts Centre.

Dimitri de Perrot - DREAMS & NIGHTMARES
Sound installation with photographs by Jean Revillard


With DREAMS & NIGHTMARES Dimitri de Perrot presents the idea of "wandering" as a metaphor for an inner and outer journey into the unknown - through listening. The core of the work is a large, dark room through which the visitor can orient himself only by means of sound, sporadic photo projections and light plays.

Dimitri de Perrot – Strandgut & Blumen


Strandgut und Blumen (Flotsam, Jetsam and Flowers) was presented at the Museum Tinguely from 26 February to 19 March 2017. Set up amidst the on-going exhibition at the time, it created a sound installation that entered into a musical dialogue with its surroundings. Noises, reverberations and overtones combined to form soundscapes that populated the room with new protagonists and coalesced into a total composition in which Tinguely’s Méta-Harmonies played a part.



The stage of Strandgut und Blumen, which visitors to the museum were welcome to enter and explore, was a collage pieced together out of elements recycled from previous exhibition projects at the Museum Tinguely. Growing out of this like flowers were the spherical loudspeakers that repeatedly immersed the island landscape in a blanket of sound. The initial spark for the installation was supplied by Myousic, a stage play that since June 2016 has been touring theatres in Europe. In it, de Perrot played with the unfulfilled expectations of an audience attending an unusual “radio play”, in which they, too, become actors, solely by virtue of their presence. A most unusual piece, it managed entirely without real actors and told its story through the sound alone. Perrot.
