Asa Horvitz is a performance maker and composer/musician. His most recent performance, A DREAM THAT BELONGS TO NO ONE, was presented at SPRING Festival, Frascati, Het HEM, and SIN Arts Budapest. It draws on experimental music and choreography to create an overnight field of attention in which spectators are invited to experience something like imagination but not quite. DREAM… is the first part of THE SAVED NIGHT, a trilogy exploring non-human presences.
Other recent works have been supported by Frascati Productions (NL), IMPOSSIBLE BODIES (NL), deSingel (BE), Microscope Gallery (NY), The New Museum (NY), Fondazione Prada Milano, Meet the Neighbors (PL), ResKeil (PL/NL), Goethe Institut Hong Kong, etc. Horvitz studied music composition with Alvin Lucier and Anthony Braxton. He has performed and toured as a musician in many contexts, including with Carmen Rothwell in the band VALES, Ben Seretan, members of his family, Anna Webber, Kalup Linzy, and others. In the performing arts he collaborated with Lukasz Korczak and Scott Gibbons/Romeo Castellucci on productions that toured internationally. Horvitz is a MacDowell, Fulbright, and Camargo fellow. He lived in New York City where he was involved in DIY performance and music, and in Warsaw before graduating from DAS Arts/DAS Theatre in 2021.
At wpZimmer he will do research on GHOST, the second part of THE SAVED NIGHT, a performance rooted in music and sound created with Carmen Rothwell, Jaxyn Randall, and Wayne Horvitz, to premiere in 2023.
