"This is a piece that never stops moving but because the movement is so slow it feels shrouded in stillness." - Ballet To The People
Choreographer's Note | Wayson Poon
In this work, dance and sound are intertwined in an abstract world, where the essentials in one’s daily life are felt. Human civilisation is constantly redefining what is legitimate or appropriate, when many of its preconceptions are rooted in ignorance. Humans, who have long been accustomed to constraints, have drifted away from their true selves. In this moment, can we contain the whole world in our enfolded existence, and open up thespace for an expanding vortex or trajectory?
Sound Artist's Note | Peter Lenaerts
Most of us are surrounded by sound all the time. Some of it we hear, some of it we choose to ignore, most of it passes by unnoticed. It is there, but we don’t hear it until we decide to listen to it.
Listening is almost always an active act, a choice. We decide to pause for a moment, prick up our ears and focus. Most of us don’t do it very often. Especially not when there’s nothing to see. It requires an act of concentration that is quite often too demanding.
And yet we are surrounded by sound all the time. In life and in art.
Whether an artist consciously uses sound or not, there is sound in the work. Always. Even the conceptual dance artist who chooses to stage a piece with no set, one light setting, and no sound, still uses sound. You cannot turn off sound. It’s there. So you might as well be aware of it and use it. Or abuse it.
