Invisible Body


Invisible Body Performance is a project by dancer and choreographer Maria Colusi and composer and electronic musician Edgardo Rudnitzky. In it, they examine the overlap between auditory perception and material reality: What role does the sense of hearing play in the perception of dance? How can choreography be experienced without the sense of sight? Maria Colusi dances in complete darkness; her movements are amplified with microphones and projected into the space via headphones. With this approach, the Argentinian duo challenges traditional notions of physical presence in art. By focussing on the auditory experience, Invisible Body Performance challenges us to re-evaluate the role that sound plays in our perception of body, movement and space. It is about deciphering the complex relationship between auditory perception and physical reality and making embodied realities tangible through acoustic stimuli. Following the performance, Maria Colusi and Edgardo Rudnitzky will reflect on the background to their performance and what they have experienced together in a discussion with Mathias Maschat and in dialogue with the audience.
