Between the Lines was a project by Noëlla Roos with two different artists—contrabass player Fendy Risk (Java) and dancer Ari Rudenko (US) performed in Bali, Indonesia.
Between the Lines shows how Noëlla expresses sensuality, life and emotion between lines of her drawings. Dance, music and drawing are three different lines joining in one work of art. The drawer could not make these drawings without having contact with the dancer and musician. It is an art project about the language that is not written, but simply expressed.
The three of artists work together over a couple of hours towards a trance-like state. When the taksu–inner energy–becomes free the ego vanishing and a trance takes over, where all three are fueled by the same energy.
After a four-hour session, the musician Fendy Risk commented, “I draw and dance today. If I play softer you both work softer, if I play louder, you both work more expressively”.
