Come lay down your brain and focus on gut feelings.
Erica van Loon presents the soft launch of her project The Second the Water Wets Your Face, Reflexes of Your Aquatic Ancestors Kick In, a new audio work developed in collaboration with composer Daniel Steiner.
Relax into a bed large enough to notice from outer space, make new memories, make weightless summersaults and let yourself sink towards a sandy dance floor, with clicking creatures that vibrate your skull.
For this project Van Loon collaborates with composer Daniel Steiner and had Alix de Massiac as her sparring partner throughout developing the script for the spoken text. Sources for the script were among others conversations Van Loon had with (neuro) anatomist Cindy Cleypool, zoologist Tacyana Oliveira and marine ecologist Maarten de Brauwer.
Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September 11.30am—12.30pm (RSVP)
Amplify your senses and join one of two Body Work sessions with performer Stefania Petroula before diving into the audio work. Petroula’s workshop opens up your senses and offers a different bodily state for experiencing The Second the Water Wets Your Face, Reflexes of Your Aquatic Ancestors Kick In.
These workshops are in small groups of 6 participants, so RSVP asap: email@example.com
