Voicing Pieces

Premiere by Begüm Erciyas, Matthias Meppelink
In the frame of 9. Tanznacht Berlin 2016

One’s own voice becomes a place for action, a spectacle, a surprise and the choreogra­phy’s protagonist. In a mini stage space, the spectator enters into a private world and becomes the performer in his own performance. The act of speaking and simultaneously hearing your own voice turns into a theatrical and choreographic experience, sculpted anew with each individual interpretation of the score.
