Through the body to body contact of the fetus and the mother, the child learns to respond to sonorous rather than visual cues. The Sonic environment is our primal territory of existence.“Dis em body ed” is an immersive, aural performance working on the connections between sound and the human.
Taking inspiration from the obsolete concept of ether or aether (the rarefied element formerly believed to fill the upper regions of space), this work deals with new in-between spaces, claiming territories where primarily the invisible comes in the foreground.
But can there be a salvation for the human element in emptiness or darkness? The performer’s ear is in charge of sensing and securing a territory where underground and sublime meet: a space of darkness, safety, old stories, the unknown. It is stuffed with memories and recollections of our roots, the underground where things end up and grow from. A space that offers new beginnings, confronting old ones.
There is no one main thing to see.
None of us is one thing.
There is no W hole. You and Me
