This workshop is open to both movement based performers and sound artists interested in examining the ways we view and implement sound in performance. In particular, we will focus both on the materiality/plasticity of sound, as well as exploring and questioning how we negotiate, control, and are controlled by sound on stage. Essentially a ‘dance’ with sound - viewing it as an equal and permeating partner in performance. Through movement/visualization exercises and deep listening, we will look at ways the movement and sound can infuse and echo each other, blurring the dividing lines between sound and gesture.
Participants are invited to bring simple noise producing materials (paper, metals, plastics, fabrics, etc.) small and large, quiet and loud, to utilize in creating an imaginary sonic landscape in which to roam. Microphones and contact mics will allow us to scrutinize and transform sound, from micro phenomena to the all-enveloping.
The workshop will be followed by presentation based on ideas explored in the workshop in the framework of music-dance improvisation series Neforma on the main stage of Španski borci.
Workshop participants: Jatun Risba, Ina Puntar, Tina Dobaj, Andrej Hrvatin, Gregor Kamnikar, Yulya Molina, Marko Gutić Mižimakov, Katjuša Kovačič, Beno Gec, Samo Kutin, Ana Kravanja
