Year 2013

 

Created in residence at Studio 303 / Créé lors d'une résidence au Studio 303


This event was an opportunity to explore ideas that I developed with Alain Lefebvre. We concentrated on sounds and objects related to cinema, technology, and the notion of the home entertainment system. Together we devised an improvised sound score which would serve as an integral part of the dance piece. We explored spoken texts, a manipulation of amplified projectors and, more generally, an approach to performance geared towards recuperating the mistakes and imperfections of our constructed environment. (clics, snaps, drones, visual glitchery)

 

The flowers in the vase emerge - red,

35 mm film drops in pink-green curls.

Neither a question nor an answer,

The extension cord laid obliquely on the ground.

Alain allowed the sound of his mixer to swell,

Sonya refrained from moving:

In all this there is a melody -

That can be sung, and can be danced.
