Music for a choreography by Conny Janssen.
(Conny Janssen Danst, Rotterdam 2010).

Track 1 is the 'clarinet version' of the title song.
There is also a vocal version and a guitar version.
Common Ground was a spectacular atmospheric open air event,
every night during 3 weeks, on a roof in the centre of Rotterdam,
by the dance group Conny Janssen Danst.

Each week I had a musical guest :

week 1 : Daniella Bernoulli (vocals)
week 2 : Mete Erker (sax & clarinet)
week 3 : Corrie van Binsbergen (guitar)

End 2011- beginning 2012 there was also a theatre tour in the Netherlands of Common Ground by Conny Janssen Danst, with live music by Michel Banabila & Corrie van Binsbergen.

Voor het eerst brengt het Rotterdamse dansgezelschap Conny Janssen Danst een voorstelling in de open lucht; op het dak van Station Hofplein. Common Ground: een beeldende, overrompelende voorstelling met als decor een stad die zich langzaam in het donker hult. Tien ijzersterke dansers creeren in dit ruwe niemandsland hun eigen vervreemdende wereld. Bijgestaan door de live muziek van Michel Banabila, Corrie van Binsbergen, Daniella Bernoulli en Mete Erker verdrijven zij de stilte en vullen de ruimte opnieuw in.
