In the frame of Open Spaces #3-2015
Don’t believe everything you hear.
Kareth Schaffer explores foley as a choreographic tool and performative practice. “Unerhört” dives into the world of cinematic post-production, where the sounds of movement, steps, clothing, and props are created in the sound studio and synchronized to the moving image. An uncanny realm between film, sound, and dance – between the aural and the visual – points away from and next to the performers’ bodies. “Open Spaces” gives insight into a longer research process before a premiere in summer 2016.
