"A Gig A Byte".
Performed at The Barn Theatre, Rose Bruford College, London, UK
In February 2017 Johan served as a deviser, and main music creator in A Gig A Byte, a performance about science fiction.
Several of the performance's songs were mainly written by Johan, and then taught to the rest of the ensemble, resulting in Johan performing a role similar to the one of the music director on several occasions.
Here, Johan got the opportunity to display his skills as a multi-instrumentalist by arranging harmonies, conducting singing rehearsals, as well as beat-boxing, playing percussions, guitar and keyboard.
"You are here, in not a very well-known land of the MC human, whose skills and knowledge allowing him to invent 365 objects and devices each year. People call him master.
All of master’s inventions network with each other in so-called: community of the united objects. The MC-human is using the united objects to constantly upgrade the operational system in his research field. Today is the day, when the master is inventing the cybermachine to experiment with the free motion. Yes, you’ve heard me well: THE FREE MOTION."
An interactive science-fiction concert-installation of 37 performers, guided by the audio tour for 45 participants, called trippers. A Gig A Byte is a gig theatre performance devised by the ensemble under the direction of Anna Makrzanowska.
