23 May, 14:00-18:00, €20,-
In 4 hours we will make a journey through the world of dancing sound and sounding dance. We will be listening to bodies moving, and be the listening bodies.
We will move the sound we just created,
Create movement with sound,
Create space with silence.
We will listen to our inner sound,
Find rhythms and musicality,
And its memory.
We will work with the breath,
As a physical expression,
And a means of communication.
We will find a voice in the invisibility.
The material of the workshop roots in the research of Eline’s project The Invisible Dancer, in which she creates a dance solo for an audience with closed eyes. During the creative process of The Invisible Dancer, Eline collaborated with people with a visual impairment, residents of the Amsterdam Transvaal neighborhood, and (dance) artists. Together with them, she researched the possibilities of listening to dance. With their feedback, knowledge and experience as a base, Eline creates the piece.
