Did U Hear is the physical and sound interpretation of the poem The rose that grew from concrete, written by 2PAC.
It focuses on expression of the body – except the face – and represents the poem through the back view of the informal body form, individual body expression and abstract movement. In addition to the image that is visually detected on the stage, the sound delivers physical experience through the surround sound system.
The SOUNDANCE Festival Berlin shows, promotes and initiates cooperation projects between dancer choreographers and musicians of the Berlin independent scene and invites international guest artists. As a platform for works from contemporary dance, real-time music, improvisation and related styles, SOUNDANCE provides impulses for dialogue between the two genres, open for experiments, analogue and electronic, and shows non-hierarchical artistic approaches of several generations of artists in one programme.
