/səs/ is a word for sound.
SəS focuses on the state of the preverbal, before language, playing with its primary elements such as breath, phonetic sounds and whistles. Considering the body as a geography, SəS aims to dig into the territories of human sound in relation to movement and gaze. Two different strata of movement, one gestural and one vocal, are superimposed through one performing body. In this rhythmical play, movements merge and diverge with constant modulation, drawing perpetual landscapes.
