part of RARE performances curated by Carolina Santos
MINUS 9 is an anatomic sound installation,
a one on one performance of 14 min for an ear, to hear, here.
It is an invitation to dive into the sonographic scenography of your own body.
From the outside all seems to be silent, from the inside the first blast of the universe is making a big band. In MINUS 9, the boundaries between musician and audience, between music and ritual, silence and sound, drumming and dreaming are broken down.
‘With MINUS 9 we tease the equilibrium in the hierarchy of the senses. Can the “ear, hear, here” become the touching vestibule of a new order? We challenge the distance in between. When do we allow ourselves to be touched, metaphorically or literally? We invite the audience to re-question and rethink how we relate to each other. In our society a few roles trespass our comfort zone to touch our skin: doctors, caretakers, dance & sport coaches. They touch you but are you really touched? Music touches us emotionally, but what if it would literally touch your flesh?’ K&A
K&A within their performative constellations transform/translocate/transhape the relationship between the performer and the spectator to make it fluid.
In any theater the audience carries a predetermined role. Within the work of K&A the expectation to be silent, to sit in the dark, to stay immobile, to watch the stage is being shifted. The latitude of the performer correlates with the longitude of the audience and is being redefined. In MINUS 9 the ear of the audience becomes the music instrument on which the composition is made on and the soundsystem through which it is perceived. MINUS 9 crosses the inner ear sound barrier, exposes the noise, the music that is hidden inside our own machine. This performance is a sonographer, an ultrasound guide into the auditors unknown zones. It is an ode to the simplicity that carries the multiplicity. A performance for an ear: to hear/here.
