Richie Hawtin challenges the distinction between DJing and live performance with a new 75-minute audio-visual show which takes you closer to his unique way of performing.
The show, CLOSE - Spontaneity & Synchronicity, explores the relationship between human creativity and the innovative technologies that enable the freedom of improvisation.
Using intimately placed cameras this man versus machine relationship unfolds onscreen in real-time bringing the audience closer than before to Hawtin’s intuitive gestures.
