Sonic Dances stages a proposal for an intimate shared situation for listening and the emergence of possible worlds. It creates a space where other forms of dancing together can occur, a space for touch without touching, dance without dancing, while insisting on the possibility of an intimate, poetic encounter between bodies. By exploring the mobility of voice, sound and verbal language, Sonic Dances seeks ways of activating bodies’ own senses, their own choreographic, kinaesthetic and empathetic potential. Encouraging bodies to listen and respond to what is present. Asking how we can be close to each other, Sonic Dances opens a space where this can be negotiated through the dance of sounds and words.
Visitors are welcomed in groups of eight at the time.
The performance-ritual lasts about an hour.
