Love and Rage


AURAL CHOREOGRAPHY FOR AN AUDIENCE TEMPORARILY DEPRIVED OF THEIR SIGHT. BY USING A MULTICHANNEL AMPLIFICATION SYSTEM, PORTABLE SPEAKERS, INSTRUMENTS, OBJECTS AND THE VOICE, WE FILL THE SPACE WITH MOVING SOUND, LEADING THE AUDIENCE INTO A CONTEMPLATIVE AND AUDITORY STATE THAT ALLOWS US TO CONVEY SOME IDEAS FROM WRITERS, ARTISTS AND ACTIVISTS IN A CLOSE AND INTIMATE MANNER, LIKE A CARESS IN THE EAR. AT THE END OF THE PERFORMANCE, ATTENDEES UNCOVER THEIR EYES AND FIND

A LUMINOUS OBJECT WITH THE WORD PERSISTENCE, WHILE A BARELY PERCEPTIBLE SOUND CONTINUES FOR A FEW MINUTES. UPON LEAVING THE SITE, A PUBLICATION WITH SOME OF THE TEXTS READ IN THE PERFORMANCE IS DELIVERED TO THE PUBLIC.

9 PERFORMANCE SESSIONS WERE HELD AT DAADGALERIE, BERLIN, AT THE CTM FESTIVAL. A TENTH SESSION WAS CONDUCTED EXCLUSIVELY FOR DEUTSCHLANDFUNK KULTUR, WHICH BROADCASTED THE PIECE AS A SECOND PHASE OF THE EXHIBITION AND OFFERED A PODCAST VERSION IN BINAURAL FORMAT FOR A SEASON.

THE PIECE IS A TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO REMAIN CRITICAL
TODAY, TO THE ACTIVIST STRUGGLE, AND THE CULTURAL RESISTANCE.
