Almut Kühne & Johanna Borchert er velkendte fra deres multimediale renaissance projekt Dowland Waters (www.dowlandwaters.com). De to musikere ser tilbage på et langt samarbejde som har sine r¢dder i musik og improscenen i Berlin. I denne koncert vil de to musikere forbinde deres improvisationsevner med et par enkelte stykker fra deres Dowland program og vil bevæge sig fleksibelt og innovativt rundt mellem fri tonekunst og nedskrevet renaissance musik. Både Almut Kühne og Johanna Borchert er hver især kendt for at mestre improvisation i diverse kontekster og samarbejder, bl.a med Fred Frith, Gebhard Ullmann, Anthony Coleman, Jonas Westergaard, Peter Bruun.
