Fatima Dunn / Mirjam von Ow

Zürcher Hochschule der Künste


Singer, cellist, and composer Fatima Dunn and video artist Mirjam von Ow take the audience on an audiovisual train journey to the unknown and the subconscious. Large-scale video projection and on-stage music performance make Landfall come alive and seek fusion between audience, artist, music, and video. Landfall features eight songs, each telling a self-contained short story, and seven cinematically underscored visual journeys. The tools the artists work with, live looping and live VJ’ing, prohibit predictability in the performance. Therefore, both the audience and the artists are put in a state of ‘being on the road’. Mirroring a real train journey, they find themselves grounded in full presence of mind, buried in thought, lost in day dreaming, and occupied by distraction. Ultimately, the audience becomes part of both the journey and the performance.
