Production Details / Press Releases
VIBRATIONS, TRANSLATIONS – an encounter of music, performance and dance – looks into the ritualistic processes of translation between sound vibrations and body motions. The performance investigates music as a way of solving contentions between the ‘human’ and the ‘spiritual’: the interconnectedness between the material and the immaterial experience of the world. Combining the selection of inanimate objects and pivotal elements of nature such as rocks and fluids, Slim Soledad and her guests explore how the vibrations can be decoded and encoded in materiality activated by movement. She looks for new connections within the inhabited bodies and envisions a new self, born out of multiple ritualized encounters.
