Festival for transdisciplinary translations
Composers choreograph sound. Dancers interpret compositions. LABOR SONOR : CHOREOGRAPHING SOUND explores translation processes between sound and movement, music and body. Contemporary forms of visible music and composed actions emerge through the encounters between extended notions of composing, choreographing and dancing. The focal point of this transdisciplinary experiment is how composing practices translate into dance and choreographic concepts translate into music .
Yan Jun, Chinese musician and poet (“I wish I was a piece of field recording”) is working on a meta-music originating in the body. For him sound is merely an electrical phenomenon located in the brain and music can thus be formed there—in the imagination of an audience. Berlin based dancer Takako Suzuki engenders in Yan Jun’s composition unhearable music directly with/through her body.
Sound and concept artist Brandon LaBelle works in his composition with the absence of dancers on stage. Their audio and video recordings superimpose on different spatial layers with his lecture performance. LaBelle understands listening as a means to rework the body in its singularity that could also lead to new social compositions. LaBelle works with the dancers África Clúa Nieto, María Escobar a.o.
