- Dance & performance
- Part of Aerowaves Twenty23
Two dancers transform the stage into a cinematic soundscape and create an intense experience using everyday objects as inspiration. Materials extracted from moving image archives are only the first layer of a construction in which new ways of creating soundscapes are explored, where bodies and (micro)movements coexist with objects acting as means of sound production. Artists become intermediaries between archive and audience, and what results is intensified, exploded, interrupted, repeated and distorted to enhance the experience. “MOS” thus invites us into a universe that amplifies narratives built from the visible and hidden relationships between movement, sound and image.
