This performance project invites you to join an interactive group experience throughout movement, sound and space. “According to Physics, the sound is an oscillation (a movement in space) made by particles (atoms and molecules) and generated by a music source “. The audience is all the time surrounded by a multitude of different sounds generating a never-ending vibrating movement of particles, which we are not able to see. Together with the live electronic music by the composer Giacomo Mattogno (Junction to Humanity), we investigate a possible representation of the sound’s physics and its propagation in the air, and we do it through a movement performance. A grid on the floor, associated with different sound parameters, suggest how to move around, what intensity, what speed, what dynamics and qualities. Taking actively part in the artistic research and in the creation process, from the abstract to the practical level, you get the chance to approach your own body language: a sensory approach, working with sounds, images, drawings, individual group exercises. Movement and musical tasks are used as a shared vocabulary; we explore themes such as dancing in a group, dancing as a couple, listening to sounds in the dark, generating sounds through dancing, questioning the emotional impact , influencing the movement through the sound. The live music, besides improving the individual musical skills, becomes a fundamental element for the analysis of the sound’s physics. Three keywords in this project: movement, sound, playground.
