Production Details / Press Releases

How is the sense of hearing connected to our movements and bodies in general, and how does it influence them? Can dancers use their bodies to open a space where the “dictatorship” of the visual is called into question? Hearing might help: by exposing the body beyond representation, divesting it of the security of its image and a spatial concept, re-orienting it and lending it new materiality. For his latest work “Invisible Piece #1: Duet for Hearing Bodies” the choreographer Laurent Chétouane works with the dancers Tilman O’Donnel and Mikael Marklund to develop a specific kind of movement. By shifting attention from seeing to hearing the audience is invited to experience dance from a new sense perspective. “Invisible Piece #1: Duet for Hearing Bodies” and “Invisible Piece #2: As if there were no end!”, to follow in December, are part of a series by Laurent Chétouane on the relationship between music and dance, culminating in 2019 in a large-scale Beethoven project on the String Quartet No. 14 in C# Minor, Op. 131.
