Sound it OUT

How does experimentation with sound impact our choreographic process?

The workshop Sound it OUT concerns the interaction between sound, space, listening and movement. Through somatic exercises linking touch, vision, vibration, and movement, the workshop will expand the participant’s skills and awareness of sound in performance. Special attention will be placed on developing the use of sound to provoke audience/ performer relations, imagine new spaces, compose listening experiences, and craft situation.

Sound it OUT will offer a brief overview of contemporary practices of analogue and digital sound in performance. Group and solo exercises will be presented for the participants to experiment and develop original choreography using a variety of sound sources. The workshop will open up broader themes of how images and audio work together to create meaning in performance; issues of gender, race and sexuality may be addressed as they emerge.

** There will be optional in studio showing at culmination of this workshop!
