Performance Suitable for english audience

seeing with ears

Katia Engel in Zusammenarbeit mit Silja Korn, Angelina Kartsaki, Polett Kasza, Eva Coenen und Sebastian Schlemminger

The performance begins in the inner-most ring of a space composed in five concentric circles. A blind performer orients herself using an auditory image created by clicking sounds in the room. Building upon this, a musician and a dancer research the echolocation calls of bats. This interaction reveals the limits of perceptions and underscores the inability to reach the others.
